In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered

This is incorrect. The CMOS battery is about the size of a quarter and is removable.
The last time I have run in to soldered batteries (and I have been at this for 30+ years), is on real old 286/386/486 boards.

BIOS or Operating System's passwords are there for the purpose related to Security and Privacy to protect the legitimate owner of a machine. While there are many locations on the Internet that might help you learn about managing passwords for a machine's BIOS or Operating System, we at G2G do not assist in what amounts to hacking past a machine's Security and Privacy safeguards.

While such requests are often legitimate, and come from users who experience exactly the kind of problem that you post, we have no way of determining legitimate vs. not legitimate, therefore we do not respond to such requests.
