    On DFI motherboards with Award 4.5x BIOS the permanent, hard-coded,
    manufacturer, back-door password which will ALWAYS work regardless of
    any user passwords set IS:

    Y. C. Lu

    (spaces and caps as shown)

    He is the founder of DFI, so they used his name as the master
    password.

    For some reason I don't see this listed in ANY master password list
    anywhere. (?) But it works, for sure. Also, it's worth trying on ANY
    DFI motherboard's BIOS.

    Enjoy!

    Is there a web site or particular newsgroup that one can go to for the
    master password list?
