If you get in touch with Apple, they will be able to check the serial of the mac, and will be able to send you a replacement DVD with the operating system on.

First, check to see if it is stolen at:
Stolen Apple Product Database If it is stolen, contact authorities.
If it is not stolen and you have the OS X Install Disk that corresponds to the version of OS X that you have:
1. Start up off the DVD
2. Choose your language and press Continue once to get into the "Installer"
3. Under Utilties choose Reset Password
4. Reset the password and then restart the computer.
If you don't have a system disk, you need to create a new Admin account:
Enter terminal and create a new admin account: 1. Reboot
2. Hold apple key + s key down after you hear the chime.
(command + s keys on newer Macs)
3. 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

4. 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 your good to go again!

Bought used MacPro laptop don't know password


If you have installer disk handy,

Versions 10.9, 10.8, and 10.7
Boot into the Mac OS X boot loader menu by holding down the OPTION key at system start
  • Choose the Recovery drive to boot into recovery mode and wait until the "Utilities" screen appears
  • Pull down the "Utilities" menu and choose "Terminal"
  • At the command line, type "resetpassword" without the quotes
  • Confirm the new account password, then reboot the Mac as usual

Versions 10.6 and 10.5
  • Insert the bootable DVD into the Mac and restart or start the computer
  • Boot the disk by holding down the "C" key at system start
  • Select your language preferences and then under the "Utilities" menu select "Password Reset" (it may say "Reset Password" instead, depends on theversion of Mac OS X)
  • Select the hard disk that the forgotten password is on, then select the username of the forgotten password, you'll then be asked to select a new password
  • Reboot as usual from the hard drive, using your newly reset password as the login!

  • Select your language preferences and then under the "Utilities" menu select "Password Reset" (it may say "Reset Password" instead, depends on the version of Mac OS X)

I cant not login in too my users i forgot my password


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

If you are unable to gain access via the password to login to your Mac OS X desktop, you are going to reset your password.

What you will need to do is use the Mac OS X restore (Disk 1) or the Mac OS X installation disk which came with your Macbook Pro.

Now perform this process:

* Insert your install disc
* Reboot your Macbook Pro

* Press the C key on your keyboard and hold until you see the white screen, grey apple, and eventually the spinning gear.

* Release the C key when you see the spinning gear

* When you reach the Mac OS X install environment, click past the language screen.

* From the Installer Menu bar select "Utilities" and then "Reset Password".

* Within the Reset Password utility, select the User Account you need access to.

* Reset the password.

* Quit the Reset Password utility when you have reset and confirmed the new password

* Quit the Installer and restart your Mac..

* At the log in window, enter your username and newly reset password. You should now be able to successfully log in. * I hope this helps.

Regards,

When it 1st comes on it says enter current password


You can do this without the Mac OS X install DVD, but be advised that doing this will trash any saved passwords in your Mac OS keychain.
  1. Power one your Mac and while the computer is starting, hold down "Command-S" until you see text scrolling through the window. This boots the computer into single user mode.
  2. At the Localhost% prompt type:/sbin/mount -uw /
    /sbin/SystemStarterYou will then see various services starting up.

  3. When the Localhost% prompt reappears, type:passwd USERNAME (where USERNAME is the username you login with)It will then ask you to type the new password twice, so do so.

  4. After entering the new password, type:reboot

Try using no password by leaving it blank. If that does not work then boot from your OSX install disk and reset the password from the menubar.

Password problem


Click Restart at the login window
While the computer is restarting, hold down "Command-S" until you see text scrolling through the window.
This boots the computer into single user mode.

At the Localhost% prompt type:
/sbin/mount -uw //sbin/SystemStarter

You will then see various services starting up.

When the Localhost% prompt reappears, type:
passwd root

It will then ask you to type the new root password twice, so do so.

After entering the new password, type:
reboot

At the login window, enter username root wih the new password.

Once you are connected, you can use the Multiple Users application (/Applications/Utilities) to change your normal user's password, or create a new user account. 


Good Luck!!
