I reformated my Powerbook to factory using the Installation disks that came with my computer.


Accidently I needed to create a users to log in and get the necessary serial number, cpu, ram etc to list for resale.


I then reformed the computer again and the user I created remains the admin of the computer. ( I have tried re-installing twice)


I need to get this back to factory settings and welcome a new users to sign in and take ownership of the computer.


How can I restore back to the factory settings for the new owner to create their profile?



PowerBook G4 (15-inch 1.67/1.5 GHz), Mac OS X (10.4)
