Mac OS X Admin Password reset WITH Install Disc, What am I doing wrong?!?
One hasn't been used for ages, and we have forgotten the password for it. (Really need to log in ASAP)
We have just moved house and I can only find the original Mac OS X Install Discs (1 & 2) for one of the laptops (I wouldn't know which discs would have been for which laptops anyway)
I googled "how to reset administrative passwords with disc on mac" and followed the instructions.
I restarted, held "C" and waited for the apple logo.
Then a kernel (I think its called?) thing came up over screen it said something like "panic.. no drive found"
Was a bit worried that I had lost everything, but restarted, and I haven't.
So, my question is what am I doing wrong?
According to Apple website, I need to get to the stage of the install where I see the "Install and Restore" option.
I am pretty rubbish with all of this, so if somebody could answer in a really simple way it would be much appreciated!
Ps. I am sure I have just made a really silly error here, and I apologize if its a bit of a trivial question (for those who know). I have tried googling it all and looked in a lot of forums but I don't understand the answers there. So hope you can help thanks!!!! :-)
