10.5: How to reset Leopard back to the Setup Assistant
Authored by: tomq on Nov 21, '07 10:36:29AM

Okay. I have now tried the NEW hint and all goes well until I try:
rm /var/db/ .AppleSetupDone

at which time I'm told that no such file or directory exists. So when I reboot I just get a blank Name and Password Leopard login screen. Now, of course I have no users. What might I be doing wrong? TIA

10.5: How to reset Leopard back to the Setup Assistant

There should be NO space between the 'db/' and '.AppleSetupDone'. So the last command you type in should be:
rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
The only space in that command is the one between 'rm' and '/var/...'. Hope that helps.

I don't know if you wrote it wrong here or copy paste but there should not be a space after /var/db
It should be one "word" after rm

rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
