Well, no smoke...
I did this and it allowed me to reset the security-mode, but when I
rebooted i found that the NVRAM is *gone* :/
I'm going to try and reprogram it, but I'll probably need a new one since
this one is probably low on battery anyway. Looks like they can be had
for about $10 online.
I notice that after the NVRAM invalid error I get a the OK prompt, but it
won't allow me to input via console. Am I going to have to plug in a
keyboard and buy a VGA monitor adaptor to reprogram the NVRAM?
