Holding alt or option while booting up can allow you to access the drive you want to boot to if it isn't set as your startup drive. Everything else can be managed from system prefs.

I've got to ask - what on earth would you want to access the bios for? Anything to do with the memory, hard drives, ports and display are easily configured via the operating system software. If it's for something windows based when using Bootcamp then again the functions are run by the drivers installed by Bootcamp itself.

Basically what I am saying is that Macs don't have a Bios you can access. You can access the main Shell at startup which you do by either holding Command-S or Command-FSCK at the bong until a black screen with heaps of writting appear but this is UNIX so I dont recomend entering unless you know what you're doing.

All the Best

There is a way to reset the password on the Mac. You have to access the command line (Black screen as some people call it) and use a list of commands. you MUST know the exact username you used to log in, because in this command prompt, everything is code entry and you cannot see a list of user's already exhisting in the system.
WARNING: Because this Command line is extremely dangerous for an amateur (even following instructions) you can severely damage your OS needing you to have to reload it. :(

Macs do not have BIOS. They have OpenFirmware.
To access hold down CMD-OPT-O-F during bootup, that is the letter O not zero.
You will get a command prompt 0 >
Do a Google search for OpenFirmware to find out all the commands you can use at the prompt.

How do I get to the Bios setup for my macbook?


Macs use Intel's Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) to perform the same job as a BIOS. Intel have been trying to introduce this for years, but thanks to Microsoft dragging their feet, were unable to put it into any production units until Apple switched onto their processors. Therefore there is no BIOS screen on a Mac, as they don't have a BIOS. hope this was helpful

How to enter the BIOS


The MacBook systems use Intel's Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) rather than the traditional Macintosh ROM or PC BIOS.
So, no such thing as going into the BIOS for advanced setup on Intel Macs (like you can on a PC).
