I have a few questions relating to the EFI Firmware utility thats hidden but supplied on the Snow Leopard install disc. Essentially I’ve installed this and set a password on my mac, the effect of that is holding down the C key on boot up prevents you from booting off a CD to reformat the hard drive if the mac were to be stolen for example. However what I dont understand is
1. If I want to now boot off a CD, how can I do this in the future if holding down C is disabled.
2. If I have to disable the password by loading up OSX and rerunning the Firmware utility, what would I do in the event my mac installation becomes corrupt and wont boot up, is my mac then a brick ?
3. Would you recommend using this utility. The reason I’m using it, is that as part of some anti theft software I’m using (Undercover) it recommends setting this password and having it in place.
