We might end up in a problem where we forgot the password which we have kept for firmware on mac. We might see following screen when mac powers on, without leaving any option to reset the password using the DVD or any other mac os x installer disks.
|Firmware password prompt|
We can remove this firmware password prompt by resetting the NVRAM, by following below specified steps:
- Change the memory configuration of your mac either by removing one of the RAM's or by adding another RAM to existing setup.
- Turn on the mac, Immediately hold command + option + P + R keys on your mac keyboard
- Perform NVRAM reset for 3 times (here you will hear mac chiming for 3 times )
- Release the command + option + P + R keys.
This should have removed the firmware password prompt.
