Hello I have two users on this computer Myself as the root and my wife as guest. When I started my computer I don't get the normal login page. It looks different. It doesn't have our accounts listed. Just a grey box that says Name and password

JACUSTOMER-h0sr0tsm- :

Are you there

iteachmac :

Hi ,

iteachmac :

A safe boot can also help ,

Turn off the Mac .

Power on the Mac .

Hold shift on the keyboard using a USB keyboard , while powering on the Mac and booting , boot to safe mode.

Once booted to safe mode , restart and boot as normal .
