    OK, got my first Mac - a Mac mini, and trying to install something needed for Xcode and I'm asked for the Apple pwd.

    Now it just so happens I can't remember it :p - it doesn't seem to be any of my usual ones!

    I hadn't associated it with my Apple ID, so can't use that method.

    So, is there a 'minimum spec' for this that may give me a clue (min chars, at least one number etc.).

    If all else fails, what do I do next ? Can I do a reinstall?

    There is only 1 account on it (mine, the admin account)

    Second one looks like it's just the ticket.

    Can't use the first as my account is the admin account.

    I'll have a go tomorrow, muchos gracias!

    Try one of these common ones
    dd/mm/yy of yourself or a loved one
    Do people really use these?

    OK sorted. The 'resetpassword' did what it says on the tin.
