    Default Macbook: changed system password

    Ok I picked up a used Macbook and changed the user name and password promptly. Now I am unable to get on the computer using the exact username/password. To break in do I need to phone Apple, or boot off an OS disk?

    If you don't have any important stuff on it yet, just reinstall.

    I am reinstalling the OS. Nope, just picked it up hours ago and changed the pw but somehow it wouldn't let me on.
