XP Home / Recovery Console

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Martin McCormick, Sep 17, 2005.

  1. Hi,

    Is there any way of running the recovery console, from XP disc without
    having previously set an administrator password.

    Can't boot at all even using "safe mode" or "last working config" options.

    Can't get past the password request :-(

    Many thx,

    Martin

    You can reset the password using this tool:
