I have an old e-mac. I was running 0s 10.4.11. I wanted to clear out that mac & make it ready for sale. I reinstalled OSX 10.4.11 telling it to wipe out everything leaving a clean mac. I entered a new user name and new password. The user was my name and the password was "password."
the hint for the password spelled out that the password was "password."
Now the e-mac does not recognize the user & the password or any combination of it and there is no prompt for a hint or anything. I tried reinstalling 10.4 but the first thing it asks for is the user & password to restart so the cycle starts over. There is nothing in key chain either. How do I fix this? Are there ant hints?
