    Anyone knows the fix or workaround. Have tried 2 Intel Macs with blank and non-blank passwords. Ran Repair Password from 9A527 DVD. No use. Login takes the username and password, blanks screen, and returns to login screen. Will not even accept the root user!!!

    Got to be something simple, right?

    iMac24 (Aluminum) updating from 10.4.10. Autologin set on Tiger Preferences. Leopard seems to ignore that.

    Help. Do not want to have to restore to Tiger.

    If I use the same DVD and do an Erase and Install, it works fine. Leopard boots up and sets up the first admin user. Will even accept a blank password.

    TIA,

    Charles:(

    Your best bet is the Apple ADC site.

    but if you have a developer release of leopard you probably know that.

    You should call ADC tech support pronto. As a developer, you should know that ADC support will be able to solve this much faster than the Macrumors forums.

    In after accusations and the obvious answer.

    You get support incidences as a developer. Report the issue and use them!

    Sorry if you disagree with my questions but pirating OSX has been getting out of hand.This causes many problems.

    The OP may very well have a legitimate copy of Leopard but if he does he doesn't know enough to call support?

    Something wrong there.

    just my little opinion..:)

    Understandable, I was going to make a comment about it myself but I waited.

    I'm sure that Apple has lists and discussion boards for this that are much more appropriate then MacRumors.

    As has been noted, ADC supports developers. Report the incident and they'll assist you.

    If you got it through piracy, please don't ask for help here.
