Ok! I understand GRUB password and other such passwords are
ineffective. I am also aware of the fact that hard drive can be read
anywhere unless it is encrypted.
The am eager to know a particular way (however bad it may be) to
secure a system, which I have not known yet.
A BIOS password and full disk encryption.

on all the older machines that I used to make if you had physical access
to the machine you could lose the bios password quite easily with a jumper
or a screwdriver, I dont know what the more modern motherboards are like
but surely they could also be similar...
