I have no idea. They have left and I don't need the data on the drive just them to work again!
The keyboard is disabled at startup so I can't start up from system disc either. Checked with USB keyboard, the same.
I have taken the memory and hard drive out and replaced. No luck.
Other than typing "oz" or "toto" as password (just guessing here) looks like you either need to get the passwords from your students or take the MacBooks to an Apple store.
Sounds to me like a firmware password has been set.
I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
