Forgot my admin password, how can I reset?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am new, sorry for any mistakes. I downloaded and installed Hackintosh 10.9 from here about a month ago. Haven't used it since. Today I booted it again and it works fine, but if I want to do something that asks me the administrator password, I cannot do it, because I forgot the password.

I am using a wireless keyboard and mouse if it is important.

I tried pressing cmd+s or cmd+r but it doesn't work.

I have an Apple ID created but it doesn't let me recover the password using the Apple ID. I noticed in the configuration system that the option "recover password usinng Apple ID" is not checked.


Please help me to reset the password.

What other information do you need from me?


Thank you,
