View Full Version : [ubuntu] help me reset password/username on an old iBook

October 7th, 2011, 09:46 AM
Just wondering if anyone knows how I can get to 'recovery mode' on an iBook that is about 7 years old?
I am completely new to ubuntu. My ex set up ubuntu on a mac laptop of mine a few years ago. I have not used this laptop since then, and now am unable to remember the username or password! I've tried resetting it as per the instructions on this site, but I think they are for a PC. Whenever I try to get to the recovery mode by pressing shift on boot-up nothing happens.
Many thanks!!:smile:
