You will need an installer or retail copy of OS X to do this. The computer needs to boot into the installer and then you can run the Password XXXXX found in the Menu Bar of the installer.

Sorry, but you will need an OS X disk to accomplish this.

Sorry it did not help. I already mentioned that I didn't have an install disk. I will still pay the $9.00 though. Thanks for trying.
