I bought a Power Mac G5 (dual 1.8g G5) new with Tiger installed. I had the intention of using it for audio multitrack recording and bought an expensive Motu interface but soon found out that OSX 10.4 Tiger was no longer supported by Apple and would not allow many audio programs to work properly. When I took the mahine to the Apple Store to upgrade to Leopard they refused to even look at it.

 

I packed it away as I had other things to do rather than get angry all the time about Apple's shameless lack of support.

 

Now I have unpacked it and purchased a Leopard disc online (NOT snow leopard) but am unable to install it or do anything as I have long forgotten my passwords.

 

So, how can I reset my admin and other passwords on this machine!

 

I have the Tiger discs but when I try to boot to them I just get the password prompt. What am I doing wrong?

 

Thank you.
