A friend of mine has just brought her Macbook she no longer uses to me to have me install a Snow Leopard install disk I wasnt using that she wanted put on this one so it would make her life easier using her MacBook Pro, apparently.
In any event, she cant recall her password so i cant get in.
She was here earlier and she did something, but i wasnt watching and she bypassed her password, which suprises me for she isnt any good with computers.
But i havent been able to do it myself
In any event, I installed the Snow Leopard CD .....this is from late /97 so it would be Intel based.....but it wont bott into the CD but brings me back up to the screen again with the password.....should it NOT automatically on a reboot start the disc?
Anyhow, she has also given me her external drive that contains all sorts of backups.
IS there anything i can do using those backups, bearing in mind, I never have backed up my own MAC as it is still new, so i havent yet personally have used Time Machine and am completely unfamiliar with it.
Any other suggestions?
As well i am curious as to why this wouldnt boot directly into the CD with Snow Leopard?
Ive done this a few times for friends and I havent ever not been able to before....?
Its Intel Core 2 Duo so it is Intel based.........
