Note to self:

If you’re trying to install a new 750Gb hard drive into a Macbook Pro, and it keeps refusing to boot off the new disk and a DVD and into Hardware Diagnostics, it might just be because you enabled an Open Firmware password, and then promptly forgot about it.

Disabling said Open Firmware password will magically resolve all your problems.
