You'll need to visit an Apple Store with a copy of the sales receipt for them to unlock your system.

@tindc from this old thread it sounds like you just need to

Go to Disk Utility --> Erase Disk --> Select Erase with Journaling.

locked hard drive can't reinstall Lion OSX

@danj also suggested in this solution to create a separate bootable thumb drive to reinstall OS X from, erase the disk using Disk Utility, and that apparently solve the issue.

@avanteguarde as you can see from the image above under my disk Utility, the earase button is gray and i cant click it

@tindc my bad. I mistyped. I mean the "Partition" button. Try using the "Partition" button and select 1 partition. Also, are you using a thumb drive or directly from the Mac? You need to boot from a thumb drive.

@tindc you need to boot from a thumb drive. You need a second mac to create a OS X installer. Find another computer with High Sierra. Follow these instructions:

Then put the thumb drive into your computer, and hold "Option" when starting up. Choose Start up from the Thumb drive. This version of Disk utility will let you erase the drive.

Try this:

Restart , Hold down CTRL+OPTN+R

it should get into internet recovery, Circling globe and it will end up in disk utility page.

Click on disk utility and erase the hdd from internal only once done go back and go to reinstall Osx sierra.

I also had an issue with a locked disc when I was in recovery mode.

I ended up installing High Serria on a thumb drive, rebooting the mac holding down command, and selected the thumb drive to boot from. From there I was able to erase the mac's hard drive with JOURNALED selected. Exit disc utility and installed High Serria. It's installing now. I'll message again if there are any problems.
