Do you mean that you are trying to install 10.2.8 ONTO the external drive? If so, you don't have to restart anything., as the operating system is not being accessed, so it doesn't have to optomize. Try starting up from the new install by holding down the OPTION key when restarting your computer, then choose the drive you wish to start up from. Click the drive you want, then hit the forward arrow.

Reset your Apple's Original Admin Password.


Resetting the original administrator account password Follow these steps to reset a password when there is only one administrator account on the computer, or if the original administrator account needs a password reset. "Original" administrator account refers to the one that was created immediately after installing Mac OS X. If the original administrator password is known, that administrator account may be used to reset the passwords of other administrator accounts using the steps described above. These steps require an optical drive; if your Mac does not have an optical drive and you have a Mac OS X v10.6 Install disc, see below.
  1. Start up from a Mac OS X Install disc (one whose version is closest to the version of Mac OS X installed). Usually, you can start from the disc by putting it in your computer, restarting, and holding the C key. Or, put it in the computer and click the Install or Restore icon you see in the disc's main window (after which the computer will start from the disc without you needing to hold C). Or, you can use Startup Manager or the Startup Disk preference pane to select the Install disc.
    Choose a language, click the arrow button to continue,
  2. Mac OS X v10.6 or later: Choose Password Reset from the Utilities menu.
    Mac OS X v10.5 or v10.4: Choose Reset Password from the Utilities menu.
    Mac OS X v10.3: Choose Reset Password from the Installer menu.
    Tip: If you don't see this menu or menu choice, you're probably not started from the disc yet.
    Note: The default keyboard layout is U.S. English while started from the installation disc. If you use a keyboard layout other than U.S English, use the Input menu (the flag icon on the right side of the menu bar) to select the desired layout before typing a new password.
    Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.
  3. Select the user name of your original administrator account.
    Important: Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually the root user. You should not confuse it with a normal administrator account.

  4. Enter a new password.
  5. Click Save.
  6. Click the red button in the upper left corner to quit the application.
  7. Choose Quit Mac OS X Installer... from the Mac OS X Installer menu.
  8. Click Restart.
After following these steps, you'll want to also follow the steps in this article.
Mac OS X v10.6: Resetting the original administrator account password on a Mac that has no optical drive
These steps require a second computer that has an optical drive.
Note: If the second computer is a Mac, make sure Mac OS X v10.5.3 or later is installed. If the second computer is a PC, make sure the DVD or CD Sharing Update 1.0 for Windows is installed.
  1. Open "Remote Install Mac OS X" from the Utilities folder.
  2. Follow the onscreen instructions.

I try to unlock my i book with the code but my screen wont turn black


Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist you.

I am not sure exactly what you mean when you mention the screen "won't turn black" after you try to unlock your iBook.

So to at least point you in the right direction, if you are unable to access the desktop within your iBook, then click the link I have provided below, in order to reset the user administrator password for your iBook:
Resetting Administrator Password in Mac OS X

Try this procedure, but keep in mind, in order to perform this process, make sure you have your Mac OS X restore or Mac OS X installation disk.

Let us know if this helps you gain access back into your iBook desktop, if this is what the issue is, based on your initial question.

Regards,

Is there a disk or something i can get to unlock my ibook


The only way to reset the Administrator password is with a Mac OS X installation disc, which matches the current version of operating system you have on your Macbook.

If you do not, there is a workaround procedure that I can provide for you, which can allow you to gain access into your user account. I am not sure if that is the way you want to go in regards to getting back to your iBook in order to use it.

Here is that procedure:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} -RESETTING ADMIN PASSWORD w/o USING STARTUP DISC-

To reset your OS X password without an Mac OS X CD or DVD (for Tiger and Leopard), you will need to enter Terminal and create a New Administrator Account:

Here is what you will need to do:
• Reboot your Mac
• Next hold Apple Command key + S key (Single User mode) down after you hear the Apple chime.

• When you see the text prompt, type in the following terminal commands to create a brand new Admin account (hitting Return after each line):
mount -uw /
rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
shutdown -h now

After rebooting you should have a brand new Administrator account.

** When you login , it will be the new administrative account.


You should now have access into your iBook.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For getting back your home folder from your previous account, you will need to actually delete your
previous user account, however, you will also be able to save the Home Folder of that previous account.
To that follow these step:

Click on the Apple menu icon, located in the upper left corner of your screen and select System Preferences.

* Now select Accounts and once the window opens, click the padlock in the lower left corner of the Accounts window and now use your new password to access this Accounts window.

* Now select the affected user account and click the "-" Minus button.

* A prompt will appear asking if you want to delete that user account.

* You need to select the "OK" button- DO NOT select the Delete Immediately button, otherwise you will delete the complete user account and the Home Folder, which is your target.

* When you click the "OK" button, give it a few minutes and it will disappear.

* Now close out of the Accounts window and System Preferences, and click on the Macintosh HD on your desktop.

* Now look for the folder entitled "Deleted Users" folder and open it.

* You should now see a .DMG file labeled with the deleted user account name- i.e: -"username.dmg"

You can now double-click and open the file and you will see the entire Home folder (all of the files and folders) of the deleted user account.

If you have reached this point, you should now have a new User Administrator Account and now access to your old Home folder.

That should do it.

If you have any issues with this procedure, just reply back to this post.

Thanks!

Regards,

User password


from apple:"From page 31 of the "Welcome to Mac OS X" booklet:
If you forget your password for your computer, insert the Mac OS X CD and restart your computer while holding down the C key on the keyboard. When the Installer appears, choose Reset Password from the Installer menu and follow the onscreen instructions.
Tip: Resetting an account password doesn't affect other kinds of passwords that might be forgotten, such as your email account password, .Mac password, secure server , Internet access password (if you have one), Keychain passwords, or Mac OS X 10.3 Panther's master password. "

If that does not work, follow the indications at the bottom of this page: Macintosh OS: Lost Admin Password
