    Hello,

    great problem here. The old lady forgot her password. My macbook has OS 10.4.6 on it.

    I am willing to wipe it out and put a new OS on it. I have a copy of 10.4.7 on dvd and want to install it. When I try to install it, I am prompted for the password.


    I have tried the boot to apple-s and then the sh /etc/rc and am told file not shared.

    Any suggestions for getting this baby back? Thanks in advance.

    You can reset the password using the procedure outlined under the "Resetting the original administrator account password" section of this document. (I'm assuming she's using the original admin account. If not, there are simpler procedures for resetting a regular user's password further up the page.)
