HP DL360 G8 - restore factory defaults

Hello.  I am new to this site.  Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.  We recently received several HP DL360 Gen 8 servers.  We had issues resetting the BIOS admin password.  Since we could not figure out how to easily reset it, we ended up restoring the server back to factory defaults.  Question:  Does anyone know what the restore back to factory defaults actually does.  Would like to know what this changes in the BIOS. 

 

Thank you.

In short, the "restore back to factory defaults" sets *all* the BIOS settings back to the way they were when the server came out of the factory. (Except the time and date of the hardware clock, of course.)

Thanks.  I understand that, but is there a list of what actually gets set back to factory defaults.  Curious to know what gets reset. 

 

Thanks,
