    Unable to reset local admin password

    Hi,

    I am having an issues with one of the iMacs. I have reinstalled Snow Leopard X (10.6) and it boots asking for a password for the 'local-administrator' but it will not let me login...

    I have tried to reset the password by booting using 'Control + S' (I think)

    Any ideas??

    Hi rush_tech,

    Didn't even realise there was a utility on the disk. Thank you very much. Do we know what the password is set to when you install the Snow Leopard OS or is easier to just install the OS and reset the password?

    Regards

    Stuart
