Please Help cant get pass BIOS - 11-27-2010, 04:38 PM
Hi there my firend asked me to put mac OS on his dell mini1011, I followed this guide here:
OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard on Dell mini 10V – Inspiron 1011 Â« OSX86SV
didnt realise there was an updated version!! Anyway I flashed the BIOS and there were alot of beeps then it shut down, seems ok, At boot, the dell logo comes up with the blue bar then it asks for a password??!! I havent a clue what the password is i try anything and it goes System Disabled, 15361,
Service tag 5JJWPJ1. When I press F2 to go to setup it asks for a password, it wont let me press F12 for boot devices, when i press f12 it does nothing. I cant get past the System Disabled screen
I have tried resetting the CMOS by taking the battery out, didnt work either. Not really sure what to do. Is there anyway of reflashing the bios using the original dell one without having going into boot order as i cant get into boot order.
Its driving me nuts and i dont really have the money to replace the laptop.
Its out off warranty also,
Any help you can give would be much appreciated.

I had this issue with a 10v I purchased with a broken hinge, eBay sellers all failed with my service code but this guy was quick to respond and gave me the bios access password before taking any money! Just asked for a donation to his pay pal if it did - which he naturally got because he unbricked the machine for me
MIT Unlock Bios & Unlock Hard Drive Recovery Service
He does bios passwords for all pc's laptops and netbooks - definitely someone to bookmark for later.
