PostSubject: Change Mac admin password without the disk   Wed Aug 03, 2011 2:28 am

Here's how to reset your OS X password without an OS X CD.

the Working solution for me was to create a new admin

you can create new admin like this by deleting a specific file.



You need to enter terminal and create a new admin account:



1. Reboot

2. Hold apple key + s key down after you hear the chime. (command + s on newerMacs)

3. When you get text prompt enter in these terminal commands to create a brandnew admin account (hitting return after each line):



mount -uw /

rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone

shutdown -h now



4. After rebooting you should have a brand new admin account. When you login as the new admin you can simply delete the old one and your good to go again!



Apple stores wont reset it for you. Computer shops may charge you $50 to $200trying to reinstall the Mac and failing at end.
