Try the following:

1) Restart the computer and hold down the X key while its booting.

2) Hold down Option at boot and choose the startup volume you want to boot from.

3) Got a OS 9 CD? Try booting from that and choosing startup disk.

I don't know the administrator password for my iBook G4


I don't know if this will help much, but you need to get your hands on a copy of either an iBook system disc or a retail Tiger OS disk. (Disclaimer: Please use legal copies.).

With the disc in the drive, restart the machine and hold down C to boot from the disc. There's an option to reset the admin password when booted from the disc. It may be in a menu (top of screen). Reset the admin password and you'll be all set. If you don't have a Tiger disc, you may be able to get one inexpensively from eBay or wherever.

This brings up something I've noticed helping people with problems, most don't know where their system discs are (or never got them). You'll likely need a system disc eventually. Friendly advice: Keep track of them!

My ibook g4 is asking for a master password to login and i forgot it


After the third attempt it should give you a clue - if you set it up to do so.
Just check that there is a password - when it asks next time just click continue. I'm surprised at the number of users that don't have a password!

You can reset the password by starting up the computer from the installation DVD (You have got that haven't you?) and using the reset password utility.

Is it possible to reset G4 ibook, without any disk?


hi,
Here are the steps how you can reset the user / password in your notebook.

1. Reboot
2. Hold apple + s down after you hear the chime.
When you get text prompt enter in these terminal commands to create a brand new admin account (hitting return after each line):
mount -uw /
    • rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
    • shutdown -h now
  1. After rebooting you should have a brand new admin account. When you login as the new admin you can simply delete the old one and you're good to go again!

Apple help


If you entered a password hint when you created the user account on your computer, then you can view the hint after entering an incorrect password. If not, and you have your original Apple restore disks, then you can reset your password by starting up from the cd. Put the CD into the drive and restart the computer by holding down the C key on your keyboard. When the computer restarts, click the Installer menu item at the top of the screen, then click Reset Password. Set the new password , then restart and voila, you're done.

Forgot admin password


From the Apple Support Forum for MacBook (yes, 3 generations later than yours.)
"With the original install discs that came with the MacBook, you can reset the administrator's password. Follow the instructions for "Resetting the original administrator account password" in this document: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1274"
