Hey cool cats... I have a problem with a MacBook Pro 8,2 that came into my shop. It has a firmware password on it. Whatever that is. And I cant seem to boot from the lion installer disc or any other disc. It has Lion installed but it can't boot from the hard drive because it is stuck trying to boot from a leopard disc via target disc mode. Is there any way to circumvent the target disc mode and get it to boot directly via the hard drive? Thanks....

Also, I notified apple and took it to another service center and they just shrugged their shoulders at me...

try to reset the nvram first. at boot time hold cmd+option+p+r until you hear the second chime, then press option to select the boot device
