    No one will help if you removed the EFI chip to get past the EFI firmware lock.

    One would only remove the EFI chip to bypass that.

    And the only reason why people would try to bypass that is because they stole a Mac and want to try using it for themselves. This is almost always the reason.

    We don't help thieves.
