If you could bypass the anti-theft system, a thief could do it too, so what would be the point of having the system? Actually, anti-theft systems are uncommonly effective at keeping owners out of their cars. This is not just a BMW thing, but it is why I drive older cars and let my newer ones sit at home. Much less chance I will be walking home.
When you said the driver's door does not open, I assume you meant the power lock does not work. That is likely tied in with the computer that has the anti-theft system built into it. One thing to consider is broken or frayed wires between the door hinges. There should be a switch in the lock mechanism to turn the alarm off. An inoperative power lock and an anti-theft system that can't be turned off are likely related to the same cause.
