If you used Open Firmware Password utility to create a password that contains the capital letter "U", your password will not be recognized during the startup process (when you try to access Startup Manager, for example).

Symptom

Your Open Firmware password is not recognized during startup.

Products affected

* iBook (all models)
* iMac (Slot Loading) and later models
* eMac
* PowerBook (FireWire) and later models
* Power Mac G4 (AGP Graphics) and later models
* Power Mac G4 Cube - all models


Solution

Don't use a capital letter "U" when setting up an Open Firmware password. Change your password if necessary.

I can understand not catching that in testing, but I can't see how that kind of bug could even happen.
