do the password that exist in the booting process can be restore..
Where exactly during the "booting process"? During POST or after POST once Windows have loaded (in which case what badge said applies)?

Pulling CMOS battery can only clear password(s) set via BIOS settings which are system(asked during POST) and supervisor(asked when entering BIOS setting) password.
