How to Fix Administrator User Name and Password Requirement during macOS Ventura Clean Install​

An EliteMacx86 Exclusive Guide - This guide covers fixes Administrator User Name and Password requirement during macOS Ventura Beta 2 Clean install.

Overview

Apple announced their new macOS lineup i.e macOS Ventura 13.0 which is Apple's newest and most awaited OS. With the release of the first Beta (22A5266r). On the 22nd of June, Apple seeded Beta 2 (22A5286j) for developers. If you have ever attempted to clean install macOS Ventura Beta 2, you might have come across the error "In order to Continue installing macOS Ventura beta, you need to log in as an administrator. Install macOS Ventura beta needs to unlock your disk." This dialogue box appears as soon as you select the target disk and click on Continue.

Whether you have installed a new disk, or have formatted the entire disk using Disk Utility, before installing macOS Ventura Beta 2, it continues to ask for the administrator credentials. Please note that it does not accept any of your previous or current administrator credentials, including any iCloud credentials. This seems to be potentially a bug, unlike seen on Apple Silicon Macs, it does ask for credentials when erasing the disk. However, this is totally different in the macOS Ventura Beta 2 case. Luckily, there is a fix for it! Yes, you heard it right!

To fix the issue, follow the steps below.

Method #1: Using Terminal


Using Terminal, you can fix the issue, without the need for any existing macOS installed on the target Mac. To fix the issue using the Terminal method, follow the steps below.

1. Plug your macOS Ventura Bootable USB into your target Mac.
2. Restart your Mac and while restarting, hold down the option key and you'll see a couple of options for booting.
3. Select Install macOS Ventura beta and press enter to boot and the installer will load in a while.
4. When at the installation screen, select your preferred language and continue
5. Select Disk Utility and click on Continue

9. After easing the disk, click on Done and close Disk Utility

2022062503364758-min.png



2022062503365246-min.png


19. Now select Macintosh HD and click on Continue and the installer will prompt to enter the administrator credentials.

2022062503370553-min.png

20. Enter the username that you obtained in STEP #1 and also enter your related password and click on Unlock.

2022062503372241-min.png

Once the Disk is unlocked, it will continue installing macOS Ventura Beta 2.

Then you need to adjust the command. Simply replace Macintosh HD with the name of your Volume.
