    Okay i promise this mac isnt stolen!! this mac was my sisters macbook she had in high school she was moving out this weekend and found it and has given it to me. it has a 6 digit pin icloud lock on it. she can not remember it for the life of her. she doesnt have any proof of purchase to show apple. its the A1286 mid 2009 model. so i should be able to do this
    here right?
    im just fuzzy on the step after step 3, about wiping the hard drive and booting from usb or disc. can any body help me out with this? i promise it isnt stolen!its the 6 digit lock
    will there be other passwords after this? or will it be like a new mac?
    my screen looks exactly like the picture in the link. any help would be greatly appreriated! its my first mac.

    She has no proof of purchase. No receipt or anything. It's been over 5 years. There's no way for me to prove its mine

    Just ask the FBI to help you .. They just cracked into that iPhone 5C that was "unhackable" lol

    Does that work? Would that bypass the lock?

    Just take it to Apple and they'll sort it. You shouldn't need proof of purchase if you explain the situation. They'll be able to see the last account the Mac was registered to and stuff, basically the history of the computer. And if it hasn't been reported stolen or wasn't registered to somebody else miles away, it will all be fine.

    apple will not help you if it stolen there's nothing apple can do because apple don't keep record or a list of stolen macbooks only if it had been stolen from an apple store stop saying apple will help him because they won't i know because i went to apple before they told me they could not help me only thing apple will do is check to see if find my mac is turn on or off i think you can reset the macbook to factory settings
