iMac G3 password/login issues

I bought a IMac G3 at a resale shop. Turns on but can't login due to not knowing password. I love the bugdom game on this computer and need help to bypass this password to be able to login

Do you know what version of Mac OS is running on it?

I think 9.0. I pushed the restart button on the side then the other button bedside it and nothing happens...just a blank screen.

I wrote about this a while back on my blog, hackaddict, but it was such a popular post I thought I’d give it a revisit. A lot of people buy used Macs, and they often run into the problem of not knowing the admin password, so here is a way to get around not knowing the admin password on Macs.

To reset your OS X password without an OS X CD you need to enter terminal and create a new admin account:

  1. Reboot
  2. Hold apple + s down after you hear the chime.
  3. When you get text prompt enter in these terminal commands to create a brand new admin account (hitting return after each line):
    • mount -uw /
    • rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
    • shutdown -h now
  4. After rebooting you should have a brand new admin account. When you login as the new admin you can simply delete the old one and you’re good to go again!
