When I power on, I get a username specified with a blank space for the password. I don't know the password. Any help would be appreciated. bremner 11:14 18 Feb 2018 Click here and go to the section titled "Use Recovery Mode to recover your Mac password" This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
