    In my case I can set an empty user password, but supervisor password can not be blank. This way everything works as expected, the password is only needed when accessing BIOS.

    Yes, once a supervisor password has been set, it's usually safest not to try to remove or even change it. Just don't forget it.

    Now it is stil l grayed out but I can boot it after setting the boot file. I will NOT add any further password next time. It's been hard to unlock it and I hope I will not have to do it again.
    Thank you very much for your help!
