    I accidentally locked my through the "find my mac" my macbook pro is running the new beta and now it loads into a gray screen won't let me login at all. can someone walk me through how to fix this problem?

    This is what apple says "Locking your system via Find My Mac may may result in the OS X Yosemite Partition being unusable. Rebooting into another partition will allow the system to be unlocked"

    Should be easy to remedy provided, you know the account email address and password.

    For all I know, (you are new here) you could be a thief or someone that found another person's MBP and you are trying to gain access. As such, I am going to refrain from going any further with what i said.

    OP, you might be innocent but we here do not know you, and for anyone of use to give you information as to how to get yourself out of this mess could mean we are being irresponsible, and helping a possible thief, not saying you are, but we don't know. So go to an Apple store with proof you are the owner.

    Apple is telling you to boot into your install of Mavericks since they don't recommend running Yosemite as your only OS. Have you tried to boot into recovery mode?

    The guy clearly stated that there's no place to type in credentials and he's asking for help to fix it. He didn't ask about ways to go around Find my Mac lock.

    What is the reason for suspicion?

    I'd take the computer to Apple Store.

    I'm wondering if while it may be blank in Yosemite if he booted into Mavericks maybe it would correctly display the screen to unlock his Mac.
