Hello, I hope you can help me.

I have a Mac Mini Server. In the Profile Manager, I deleted 1 of 2 profiles. In hindsight, it may have been the Administrator Profile. Now I can't Login.

I restarted, now the only Profiles that appear at login screen are "Guest User" and "Other" which I can't get past.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.

Paul.

ML 10.7.5

All is okay now, I did a Recovery to an earlier date and seems to be working fine now.

Thank you!

In window About This Mac", Mac mini Server, says "Mac OS X Server Lion 10.7.5"

I guess that's the Server software.

Where do I find out what the mini's OS is, or am I all screwed up here?

Thank, Paul.

Hey Macmanmacman, I guess you know your stuff, cuz you are screaming it! Wink

I got it fixed by Recovering to a date a few days before the issue that I created. All is well with the World now...

Many thanks!
