Install disc 1 of the 2 disc gray set. Press C to boot from the DVD drive. Click on install software in English and press OK. Now go to the top menu and select disk utilities and then select change admin password.

Forgot my administrative password


Creating a new Admin on Mac Os X:
Here's how to reset your OS X password without an OS X CD.
the Working solution for me was to create a new admin
you can create new admin like this by deleting a specific file.

You need to 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!

Hi i forgot my mac password what do i do


Here’s how to create an admin account without knowing the current administrator password.
This is nothing new to people familiar with unix, and can’t really be classified as a “hack”, but it’s an easy way to make an admin account without a password. This particular method is used if you, for some reason, can’t get into your account at all, for example: you lost MAC Admin password and you account is protected with FileVault. This process basically forces your computer to re-run setup, which is what you see when you setup a new Mac.
This process will take about 5-10 minutes. If you have a password, or WEP code for your network or internet, be sure to have that at hand.
