For more details on how to get into Recovery Console, follow the steps below:
- In your BIOS set CD-ROM has 1st Boot Device.
- Insert XP Setup CD, to boot from CD.
- After the intial loading of drivers is over, on the Welcome to Setup Screen with 3 options; Press R key, to "Repair XP installtion using Recovery Console".
- On the next screen you will be asked to choose your Windows installtion, choose the one that is causing the problem by typing the number beside it.
Does the installtion show here; If yes, then you can continue with the rest of the steps:
- Now you will be prompted for the password of Administrator, enter it; If password is blank, just press <enter>.
- Below are two ways to recover from this problem from the Recovery Console, use any one of them.
Use Method1 only if u downloaded and installed SP2.
Use Method2 if u have installed SP2 from CD and u have the CD; or if u have'nt installed SP2 at all.
Type the following commands:
copy crypt32.dll c:\Windows\System32.
Type the following command:
expand x:\i386\crypt32.dl_ c:\windows\system32\crypt32.dll.
(where x: the drive-letter of ur CD-ROM drive and c: is the partition where XP was installed)

I get to the area where it asks for the administrator password and I'm stuck !!!
I don't recall using a password when setting up this machine and I tried just hitting enter with no luck. Is there a default password I could try? I tried a few and got locked out after 3 times, rebooted and tried a few more.

You could blank the password using the nt offline password utility

I tried both methods listed to fix the problem, here's what happend:
With the firstone I get the message "the system cannot find the file or directory specified"
So I tried the second and get this message "unable to create file crypt32.dll"
I checked and rechecked my spelling and syntax so I didn't do anything wrong with that.
Any other ideas???
