You would need to be more specific. Mac operating system being run? Mac model? Where are you trying find the command line? It's in utilities - Terminal on OSX.

I need to restore my computer without disc, what should I write in command prompt?


To access the System Restore Gui from command prompt you will need to type in rstrui.exe
OR
%Windir%\System32\rstrui.exe

Other Thoughts
--------------
If you are experiencing Boot issues you will need to install a boot manager. If your system is missing a file or a file is broken, you may need to replace that file with a working version that's compatible with your OS Version.

How to find your MAC address using MS-DOS


The MAC address is the physical address your computer's Ethernet card or network interface card (NIC) uses to identify itself to other computers and devices on your network. There are different ways to find your Ethernet card's MAC address, depending on what operating system and programs you have installed. Since most Windows-based computers have access to the MS-DOS command prompt, using DOS to find your MAC address is one standard way to do it.

There are a couple of different tools you can use in MS-DOS to find your MAC address. All of them requiring opening a command prompt window, which you can do by typing "cmd" into the Run bar on the Start menu (or in Windows Vista or 7, you can type it into the Search bar instead).

- Getmac

Getmac is a utility that is included on Windows Vista computers and on newer Windows XP systems. Typing "getmac" by itself on a command line will return the MAC addresses of any NICs that you have installed in your computer. (If you have an Ethernet NIC and a wireless NIC, for example, Getmac will list the MAC addresses for both of them.)

- Ipconfig

Ipconfig is a command that will display your IP address if you are currently connected to a network. However, by adding the "/all" switch to it, you can also see your MAC address, as well as many other configuration settings. Type "ipconfig /all" and look for the line labeled "Physical Address." If you have more than one NIC, the MAC address for each NIC will be displayed separately.

The MAC address sticker on the bottom of my Toshiba Satellite A215 is so worn I can't read the MAC ID. Where can I get the MAC ID for this machine? (just purchased used) everything else works...


If you are running Windows...
Go to Start Run (or hit the Windows key and the letter "R" simultaneously on your keyboard) and type cmd. crasher35_14.jpg
Once in the command prompt, type "ipconfig /all" crasher35_15.jpg
It will give you a lot of information, but what you are looking for is the line labeled "Physical Address." crasher35_16.jpg

You may have more than one device listed depending on how many network devices you have installed (such as a wireless adapter, a virtual adapter, or a second network interface card). Look at the description to help determine which one it is you need.

Can't log-in in mac os x


I'm assuming that you have forgotten your password, if so, here is what you need to do.
1. With the unit turned off, press the power button to power-on the mac, but also hold down the "CMD" and "C" keys on the keyboard at the same time. This will tell the Mac that you want to boot into SINGLE USER MODE.
2. Mac OS will now boot into a unix command line shell. From here you only need to remember your username and then type in the following command-line statements.
sh /etc/rc passwd USERNAME reboot
In this instance, USERNAME is the username that you normally login as. The "passwd" command will prompt you to enter a new password for the user called USERNAME.
WARNING: Changing your password this way will wipe out any and all keychain passwords associated with your user account. This is a pain, but better than not logging into the box.
