I have received a decommissioned ArcSight 5200 appliance (1U HP server). I
want to install Linux on it, but I cannot get past the bios boot manager
password. It has a custom Phoenix BIOS v1.10 1.5.3.

Removing the battery did not help and I cannot find any clear CMOS pins on
the board. The documentation on the hardware is almost non-existent. Did
anyone ever managed to re-purpose an ArcSight appliance for Linux? I'll
appreciate any help here.
