Before anyone asks, NO, the machine is not stolen or other. Simply a test object given to me. This Thread is meant, for you to use your brain, not to just run your fingers over the keyboard and waste space. Late 2011 MBP 2.4GHZ i5 4GB Ram (original) 500gb hard drive HDD wiped clean. EFI password set. NO ACCESS AT ALL! Lots of research has been done! I know, that PRAM reset with change in RAM size does NOT work(works in the 2009/10 MBP!), just like a lot of other generic Apple forum BS (cant call it anything else) I just ordered a new Micronics EFI Bios chip with the bios programmed onto it. But, I also was considering, to send it out, to get the chip flashed/ password removed Any other suggestions before I reach for my heat gun?
