    Yes I know other people have posted this and gotten the answer that you just put it ion anyways and you wont see it come up but it works. Well I do not actually have a password set so usually I just hit enter with it blank but when I do that in Terminal it says sorry wrong password or something until I hit the 3rd try and it boots me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You'll need to create an actual password for best results. There is a way that deals with editing certain system files, but I really have to advise having an actual password on your account.
