After erasing my hd and reinstalling Mac OS X Mavericks I am not able to create a user account. It just seems to loop. I also tried to create a second account, for that worked last time, but now it even loops with the second one.

So my question: Any ideas what I could try next? I need my Macbook usable until Wednesday, because I have to write and print my CV and don't own any other computer...
