Question about Apple iBook Mac Notebook
Until now I was the only user in my computer and I didn't need to use any password, but I remember that I did store one for the admin when I installed windows XP. My roommate asked me to use my computer and after he messed up one of my files I decided to add another user and to block the access to some of the folders. Everything went great and I created the User, changed the folders setting and the way you login to my computer. When I did restart I have 2 users, but I forgot the admin password and I can't login with my user only the new user I created. I can't change anything because the new user have limited access. I can't believe I did something so stupid, please help I am desperate. i for got my password for my mac osx
Basically you need to insert the first restore disc and restart your computer, when you hear the sound of it booting up press the C key and hold it down till you see the apple symbol, it may take awhile for it to start up don't worry. When the first window pops up, select english. Then the next window will pop up and then don't do anything with that window, but at the top of the finder click utilities tab and then password reset. Select the account that you want to change and enter the blanks then click the save button. After doing so the blanks should be blank again, now at the top of the finder click the password tab and click quit. Once you have done that at the top tabs again you should see an installer one, click that and select quit. Then restart. Thanks!
