    I have a Macbook Air but have forgotten the EFI password on it. I erased the operating system and cannot boot from a USB as i do not know the EFI password.

    Is their any solution how i can overcome this??

    Also can i boot from a USB DVD DRIVE without pressing alt. Will it boot from pressing C?

    With EFI locked down it won't boot from any external source and if you don't have the password there is no way for you to get it back yourself. You will need to take it to an authorized Apple repair center to get it reset.
