SetBIOSSetting: Dependency Condition is not met returnCode="32769"

This error happened on HP 6565b:


<BIOSCONFIG Version="2.60.13.1" Computername="Win7-comp1" Date="2014/02/21" Time="10:53:06" UTC="-5" >
<SETTING changeStatus="fail" name="Embedded Security Activation Policy" reason="SetBIOSSetting: Dependency Condition is not met" returnCode="32769">
    <OLDVALUE><![CDATA[F1 to Boot]]>

    <NEWVALUE><![CDATA[No prompts]]></SETTING>
<SETTING changeStatus="fail" name="Activate Embedded Security On Next Boot" reason="SetBIOSSetting: Dependency Condition is not met" returnCode="32769">
    <OLDVALUE><![CDATA[Disable]]>    <NEWVALUE><![CDATA[Enable]]></SETTING>
<ERROR msg="Failed to set BIOS config" />
<Warning msg="BCU return value" real="16" translated="16" />
</BIOSCONFIG>

This issue was detected using Biosconfig.exe utility to modify BIOS Value and to activate TPM  on the specified model.

Possible cause: The right BIOS password was not used to access and modify BIOS Values.
Verifying...

Solution:

BIOS password needs to be set.
This can be done by adding the two commands: 
 
biosconfigutility.exe /nspwd:xxxxx 
biosconfigutility.exe /cspwd:xxxxx /setconfig:test.txt
