Have ran a recovery on an ipad but it is asking for an apple id, however, the user believe it or not cannot remember their login details. Also it appears the login is not the one that should be being used. I have tried the one that should be used but it isn't working either.

How can I bypass this or set the ipad with the correct apple id ?

Thanks

I don't think that's possible. Maybe contact the shop where he bought the ipad to see if they installed it at the time and used their login.

Whats happened is its a college. Staff were issued with a generic applied and password by the college. One member of staff took her ipad home, decided to try and setup another applied it appears and she set a passcode. She has forgot the passcode and the applied. I had to recover the ipad but can only get som far setting it up as it asks for the applieid she setup. Now I can't get any further !!!

If the user can remember the Apple User ID, you should be able to reset the password at http://store.apple.com/us and clicking on the 'head' icon at the top right hand side of this page.

Click on Sign in to reset the password.

You're running into the Activation Lock function, added in iOS 7 to help prevent device theft.  

Even after a factory reset, if this is enabled (which is done via the "Find my iPhone" function - part of iCloud), the only way past it is to enter the password for the indicated AppleID.  This is complicated by the ID being partially obfuscated.  Apple won't help, because what's to say you're not some guy with a stolen iPad looking to have it unlocked.

Hopefully the part of the AppleID that is shown will help your staff remember what the associated email address is (and has access to it).  At which point, go to: iforgot.apple.com and issue a password reset.
