    The first thing to do is unlock it again from iCloud, on any web browser. If you can't remember your iCloud details, start at iforgot.apple.com

You need to visit an Apple Store (Genius Bar appointment) to get it unlocked.


How do I unlock my Mac?

Once you locate your Mac, you can unlock it by entering your passcode on the lock screen. If you forget your passcode, you'll need to take your Mac to an Apple Authorized Service Provider along with your proof of purchase.
