Greetings! I just got my new 24inch iMac today (2.16ghz processor, 2.0 gig sdram, 500mb hard drive, GeForce 7600 GT) and I love it.
I just have one small problem... when I tried to update the system software, it said I had the wrong username and/or password. I'm pretty sure I have the right one- any thoughts/insights on this or an easy way to reset it?

Thanks in advance!

I don't know why its not working for you.. thats actually really odd. I would double and triple check your password, and weather the caps lock key is on now, or was on when you set the password...

if all else fails... this thread should be able to help you.

You probably typo'd your initial password, it happened to a friend of mine. Just follow the link that PowerBookG4 sent you and it will be all fine.
