Intel Anti-Theft locked computer - ASUS Zenbook

I run my own computer repair shop, and I should of course have thought about this before dismantling the computer, but I didn't, so here we are.

The customer cannot for the life of him remember the password for this, nor that he has even ever set it up, but he probably did once upon a time.

That means I will have to have some other way of getting into the computer, and turn off the IATT.

I can provide proof of ownership (original receipt) for the computer, if needed.

Can anyone help?

Since we Moderators are incapable of providing support/assistance in this matter. You can Contact Technical Support 24/7. Via Phone/Online Chat being most expedient.  https://service.mcafee.com/webcenter/portal/cp/home/contact

Thanks but none of the text is readable. You could get us another close-up image of the screen to speed things.
