I Need Ideas

Postby Dismayed » Thu Jun 14, 2018 6:03 pm

I have a problem. I used Bootcamp to boot Windows 10 and discovered that I couldn’t get back to OSX. The Bootcamp utility would not start under Windows or on start-up, so I reset PRAM. The computer now boots to OSX, but my login password will not work. There is no other admin account on the machine.

So I may need to reinstall OSX, butI am unable to export my ZFS pool. It is backed up, but a restore will take a long time. Ideas and help appreciated!

As I understand it, you will have to force the import (-f flag), but it's not a big deal if you can't export the pool.

yeah, no big deal…

I occasionally forget to export a pool when I'm doing OS maintenance and the -f does come in handy once I've realised my mistake hours later… (or should I say one too many Co-conspirator Matriarch NEIPA's later) :shock:

Success in creating a new user account. So I will be able to export my pools. My only concern now is that the uninstall didn't work properly on my other computer.
