    Default someone who has a working hackintosh plz answer me this

    ok, this might be a very stupid question. is it possible for someone to make a "dummy" account and email it to someone else? i got a good leopard install up now but i cant get past the "do you already own a mac" screen. and tiger absolutely will not install on my system (tried everything) so i can't make a profile with it. thnx for any help.

    Default

    try booting with the -s option (single user)

    once you get to the command prompt, enter these commands:

    fsck -fy
    mount -uw /
    passwd
    (now enter a root password)
    touch /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
    exit

    notice the "." in .AppleSetupDone.
    That should bypass that problem.

    the first 2 steps work fine. but when i type in "passwd" all i get is "unable to open Directory node with name /Local/Default. Unable to open node.

    Ok, I followed those steps and it went through with no errors, but it still will not go past the welcome screen. I have looked up several methods for adding a user from command prompt, none of them are working though. Any other ideas?

    The welcome screen is only shown if there does not exist a file /var/db/.AppleSetupDone

    The steps I outlined above should create that file, thereby bypassing the Welcome screen. It should take you to the GUI login. That is why you must set a root password, so that you are able to login. Then you would login as root, and create a user from there. Try the steps again, verifying that there exists a .AppleSetupDone in /var/db (remember, it is case sensitive).

    Additional steps to try:
    The reason you cannot get past that point in the welcome screen is because Setup Assistant cannot detect your ethernet. Get the correct kext on a flash drive, boot into single-user mode, run

    fsck -fy
    mount -uw /
    (now mount your USB stick)
    sudo kextload /path/to/kext
    exit

    to resume Setup Assistant with your ethernet loaded.
