    Please Help
    I was given an eMac from my local school district. The problem is that I don't have the "admin" password.
    Is there anyway I can restore the whole eMac?

    I do not have the restore disks and I am using a universal keyboard.

    Specs:
    Imac 27", 3.3GHz, 512 flash storage, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra.
    Well depending on the specifications of the eMac purchase OS X.4 Tiger or X.5 Leopard and make sure you get the full retail install version and not a grey coloured system restore disc.

    Or contact the donor to ask for the restore disks, assuming they were the initial owners of the eMac. If not, then Harry's answer is your best option.
