Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

Administrator password ***** ***** from Apple ID password. It is your login or user account password ***** setup when you setup this Mac. If you didn't setup any, then try leaving it blank and hit return or OK. Does it allow you to install ?

If not, then we can reset it. It is a easy process. To send you instructions, I need to know the version of Mac OS X you are using on it

What version of Mac OS X are you using ? Click on the Apple icon and select About this Mac and you can see the version number there
