Question about Apple Power Mac G5 Desktop
Someone has broken into my G5 and now my system has stopped responding to my original password.
I have tried the gray disk 1 and the reset feature, but that did not work. I got a message that stated that the, SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR (ROOT) did not save the new password.
Please let me know how I can correct this.
No one seems to understand the problem. How do you disable or reset the firmware password? All the basic keystrokes are disabled with firmware password protection enabled. They say the only workaround is something physical, but what is it? Removing the battery and ram does not help.
Any real ideas?

You'll need your install disk.
Important:Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually areference to the root user. Do not confuse it with a normaladministrator account.
