10.5: Fix a hang on admin password entry
Authored by: lopezzi on Jan 02, '09 07:36:23AM

I had the same issue and what worked for me was to create another admin user with the account name something other than "administrator". Our macs are tied to AD and there is an AD account called "administrator". Once I logged in, it would take forever to load. I think it was trying to authenticate against AD even though it was a local account or something like that. Anyway, using an account named something other than administrator fixed it for me.
