The way you can tell is if the lock screen comes up after booting and that's the first thing you see roughly seconds after power on the firmware lock will be grey with an arrow pointing right. Thanks, as I have previously noted; I already have part of the password, so it's numbers only which should take an hour or two.

It is my laptop, and I'm using legally purchasable and usable products, to access my own data, so with respect to forum rules, I don't believe it's applicable. Agreed, there is no editing of proprietary software s in this help attempt, if you own the laptop and bought the OSX you are free to do with it what you like, no pirating is going on, Acronis and the programs mention herein are free with the OPTION to buy.

It isn't firmware - no firmware password added. I can get into the disk utility, but still can attach anything to the Mac to copy or dd the drive Man this is such a nightmare!

I figured the easiest option was just to take out the HD, but I got conned at maplin and they sold me 6star screwdrivers not Life just shouldn't be this difficult!! Okay, IF availble try using a different accoutn on the same computer unless yours is the only one. If FileVault is turned on, you might be able to reset your password using the Reset Password assistant:.

After resetting your password and logging back in to your account, you might see an alert that the system was unable to unlock your login keychain. This is expected, because the passwords for your user account and login keychain no longer match. Just click the Create New Keychain button. Community Forum Software by IP.

    Posted 22 June - PM Hi. I'm hoping you all can help, or set me off in a better direction! I have a MacBook Air that I've recently unpacked from a box.. Moving house and have forgotten the password for. Two things: 1.

    FileVault is on 2. So I have an encrypted HD that I cannot access. Software version is usually asked for..

    It's not capitan- probably Yosemite, perhaps earlier mountain lion? I'm not a Mac fan boy, and most of my computing knowledge is PC based. AppleID - fails - doesn't give me the option, and can't connect to wifi, can't turn on machine past login screen, only have one username, no guest account Recovery mode - this was so long ago can't remember why it failed, but it did..

    No recovery key perhaps.

    It was the first thing I tried. And it's very expensive - pretty much the cost of a new laptop! Another MacBook Air if there's a dumb ass Mac to Mac thing I'm missing Belligerence, stubbornness, and a 'I'm going to do this of it kills me' can do attitude. Above average tech skills, but no coding skills - I. Questions: Is there a way I can 'hack' this myself I've got a vague idea of parts of the password, so it won't be totally years and years of brute force - if so - how can I set this up?
