Found in trash and EFI locked, can I bypass and disable it?
I found this iMac in a lot of two at the transfer station today. The last owner removed the glass panel and... lost it I guess, removed the RAM, and removed the HDD. I put new RAM and an SSD in it only to find when I tried to boot off a USB it had an EFI lock. I tried the RAM trick for models around and/or before this era and that has allowed me to bypass the lock and boot from USB but upon a second boot the EFI lock has returned. Has anyone discovered a flaw that can be exploited to bypass and disable the EFI lock on models of this era or do I need to go the hardware route and re-flash the EFI chip?
BTW I know that this is an anti-theft data safety type feature and it should be assumed by others that I stole it if I don't know the EFI lock password but I swear I have not stolen this more then decade old EDU iMac, that would be unbelievably stupid of me to do.
Es esta una buena pregunta?
