Start up from your installation DVD holding down the "C" key. Go to the second screen pull down menu to Utilities > Disk Utility. Select your drive and format it and give it one partition. Now you can install your system.

ahmed,

Sorry press the "C" key.

ahmed,

Insert your system installation disk and restart holding down the "C" key till the Apple logo appears. If this fails, disconnect the hard drive and do the same thing. Let us know your results.

I prefer to walk into music station in jersey city they are the only ones that actually have a store and can do the work while you wait. I don't trust the guys that just have a website and you send it to there house where it can catch bed bugs or get knocked over.

there store is in New jersey there site is jerseycityrepair.com

For EFI password : warning ! qwerty keyboard

If you have no password just one solution : The old trick of changing RAM level does not work anymore. Only an authorized Apple Service Provider can reset.

changing the bios chip will only work if you know programming with a eeprom reader/writer there are services that do this on the net for 200 dollars

I don't know at your end. But macunlocked.com is doing that for $90 only.

I haven't had it done just seen research will find out the right price..right?
