  • During installation, you would have been asked for the password of the root account. If you didn't specify a password, then simply pressing Enter may be accepted only if nothing had been provided during the install. In general, specifying no password is not considered a wise practice.
  • A better source for discussing the installation procedure can be found in Section 4 of the official FAQ:

Why don't ask the guy who posted that crap on the Internet? That is not official OpenBSD documentation.

if you forgot your password.
just try to boot in single user mode
1) boot -s
2) it will prompt Enter pathname of shell or RETURN for sh: just press enter
3) fsck -p / && mount -uw /
4) fsck -p /usr && mount /usr
5) passwd
type your password and this time dont forget what you haved type
6) reboot

ref: http://openbsd.org/faq/faq8.html#LostPW
it will work if you havent created a password for single user mode or you didn't forget your password in single user mode..
