    Hey guys!

    Long time member just don't get to post so often :eek:

    Just picked up a macbook for my daughter it's a 1.8 with 2 gig memory and a 250 g hd

    I think its first gen second revision?

    Anyhow... it came installed with 10.6.6
    I just tried installing CS5 for her and it's not working? wants a password.
    In the system pref menu it says there is no master password set?
    I tried just hitting enter but it still wants a password.

    The laptop came with Tiger CD's, if I boot off the Cd's to reset the password will it affect our Snow Leopard?

    Thanks guys!

    I tried to reset a Leopard password with a Tiger disc and it didn't see the user.

    Think it needs to be same or higher OS.
