If you can get into XP, even safe mode, you can change the registry to not ask for a password on the recovery console. While you are changing things, also premit yourself the ue of the "set" command in the recovery console:
Instead, just run REGEDIT and change two things that appear on the same page:
Start--> Run --> Regedit
Set the DWORD SecurityLevel value to 1
Set the DWORD SetCommand value to 1
By the way, Microsoft offers some advice on the password problem in:
For more info on the set command, once you get into the recovery console, type "SET /?" without the quotes. For more info on "set" and the recovery console see the following Microsoft articles:
If you can not get into XP to change the regisrty, and if you can not determine the administrator password, you can try the following alternatives to the XP CDROM:
1. floppy disk set, downloadable from Micrcosoft. These are called "setup dsks", but I hear that they include most tools in the recovery console. Be sure to get the set appropriate for your version of XP. http://support.micro...om/?kbid=310994
2. Try the recovery console of a Windows 2000 CDROM.
3. On a separate compute, make a Bart's PE rescue CD, then try it on your problem computer. Bart's is similar to the recovery console, but a heck of a lot friendlier.
