Can't set up "User" account & Don't know Administrator Passr

Postby ljx » Thu Sep 15, 2011 1:34 am

Hi All,

I recently installed SL on my Lenovo S10e using the 1.1.17 Enabler.

Everything went fine with the install, except now that i want to load some software, I can't — because it always asks for an Administrator password.

The thing is, I never got a "log on" screen that asks for a name and password. No set up assistant screen appeared.

When I go into accounts to create a new user, I can't because it asks for the Administrator password...and I have no idea what that is!! :(

Does anybody know what has happened here, and how I can fix it?

Any advice appreciated.
