Hello all,

I am researching the firmware lock feature on imacs and macbooks, and I have a quick question that I needed clarified. If I have an iMac or macbook that has a firmware password, and is locked via find my mac if I reprogram the efi chip on the motherboard to clear the firmware password will that also get rid of pin required by find my mac? Also, I am correct in assuming that because of a firmware I couldn't boot into a linux distro, because it only allows the boot of the startup partition?
