If there is a password you must use hacking software from diskette and break it and then use recovery console or you can do complete reinstall of OS cause the system is broken anyway.
I am using 'XP Professional' and I am finding it difficult to fix the 'ntldr missing' problem. The pc stops booting as it is not finding the 'ntldr'. I know that by booting from the 'xp' disk I can fix the problem but in order to fix the problem with the 'xp' disk I need the 'Administrator Password', which I do not know.
I would like to know if there is a way of recovering or changing the administrator password from the command prompt. (as my friend gave a disk that can take me directly to the command prompt without any problems.)
Thanks Very Much for your help,
System Restore may bring things back to life, if not try these Q & A on this
Boot up with your CD in the CD Rom and when you presented with Windows Setup
1- Install Windows
2- Repair existing copy
Select 2 by Pressing R on your keyboard, on the Command Prompt type:
C:\Windows>CD.. Hit [Enter..] on your Keyboard
on the new Prompt type this:
copy X:\i386\ntldr c:\ where X is the Drive Letter for your CD-Rom
copy X:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\ " " "
Please type one at a time click/Hit [Enter..]
You may need to rebuild your Boot.ini type this on the Prompt:
C:\>Boot.ini click Enter and you will see your Boot.ini you can Edit it or
if was intact leave as is, the boot.ini will look like this, be aware this
for XP Home so if you have XP pro:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home
You will get Boot Indentifier: Enter this " Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition"
Boot Loader: Enter this" /fastdetect"
When you finished type: reboot (I'm not sure if it is right you can Type ?
to get the list of commands and see if reboot is one) or Exit.
Please let us know.
