I borrowed a Windows XP Pro CD(my edition is Home ~did'nt think there would be a difference.)from my friend and tried that yet when I accessed the Recovery Console it asks for an Administrator password to proceed. I have never added a admin password so is blank(it lets me click on administrator with no password request when entering safe mode).
However after leaving the password blank and pressing enter a message appears saying password invalid. Has anybody had a similar problem before? Is there anyway to bypass this or is there another way of recovering windows? Please help as I do not wish to resort to formatting the whole of C drive.
