Picked up a Mac SE/30 the other day for FREE! not sure if its a good thing or not yet. I got the darn thing to boot up but there is a password needed. Is there some way to reset the password or bypass it? My main reason to grab this mac was for Oregon trail. I realy wanna play it again. Any ideas?

Hi Thaadius Smile

Gratulation for having such a great computer for free,
as far as I am concern its one of the best classic Mac¥s ever build!

To remove the password try to boot the Macintosh with a "Boot" floppy disk.

After booting from the disk, try to find a "password" or "key" etc. extension
in the -->system folder --> Extentions folder on the original Mac¥s harddrive
Drag the extention out of the folder onto the desktop.

Reboot the Mac without the boot disk in the floppy drive.

Let me know what happened Smile

At Gamba¥s Mac page you find Bootdisks, try (many dead links)
Disk Tools 7.5.2
or DISK FIRST AID 7.2.2

http://home.earthlink.net/~gamba2/bootdisks.html

If you can¥t find any password extension at the system try this:

When resolving extension conflicts, it is a good idea to first boot with the [shift] key held down. This allows the Macintosh to boot without loading any Extensions or Control Panels; if the computer boots normally and has no problems, the error was due to an Extension or Control Panel. There are several utilities to turn Extensions and Control Panels on and off; System 7.5 includes the "Extensions Manager" Control Panel do just that.

Here you find the Classic Mac User Guide.

Here is the # Macintosh Troubleshooting Guide
