firmware lock on MacBook Pro
So I purchased a MacBook Pro from someone which seemed to work fine at first. But then I reformatted the drive so I could install a fresh copy of MacOS.
I noticed that every time I boot up now the lock icon shows up on the screen.
I did some research and found out it is a EFI / Firmware locked. I’m not sure exactly which one is the proper term or if both mean the same thing. Anyways, I have a spare MacBook Pro, same year, same kind of model and was wondering if i could just pull out the logic board from my spare system and put it into the system which is locked?
Would this eliminate my problem and have the ability to use my device? I really hope I can get an actual answer and not some sad person telling me its stolen and to give it back.
Thats not the purpose of this site now is it?
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
