Terry Wells (wristtattoo): This really helped thank you. 1. Hold down +S 2. When the terminal-looking black screen loads type in (no speech marks) "mount -uw /" 3. "rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone 4. shutdown -h now Then on restarting, my ye-olde 2002 G3 iBook (today in 2015) was restored to factory settings.
