    I believe if you take it to an Apple Store with proof of ownership they can reset it.

    I didn't think macs even have a BIOS to flash, I thought that was pretty much a windows pc thing.....

    I think he is after resetting the EFI password.

    Aside from the ridiculous text size and color, if your "friend" actually did such a thing, he can unlock it, so just make him do it then remove the pin.

    I think "& hi is forget the pin" means "and he has forgot the pin".

    First of all, your friend is a jerk. Bring it to Apple since you are talking about a BIOS on an Apple forum, you clearly shouldn't be messing with it.

    Since this a pre-2010 MacBook, have you tried starting it up with only one stick of RAM? That tends to reset it! If not you need to go to Apple to get it reset and smack your friend on the back of the head for doing this.

    Your English language skills really needs work. And you don't have to post with such a font that makes it looks like you're shouting.

    Since it's a 2008 MacBook, you could try booting up with just one stick of RAM, or doing a PRAM reset. That should reset the EFI password.

    Macs don't use BIOS, they use EFI.
