gotta problem here

Recommended Posts

Dear WNSO computer masters,

I gotta really great problem here. I've got windows professional 2000 in my computer. But somebody has changed the password. I've tried thousand times with different passwords but didn't work. I'm really in trouble coz most of my important files are in that computer.

So how to drag those files out of the hard disk. Any idea?

.....looking forward for your reply.

 

regards,

Suresh

Easiest way is to do parallel installation. I mean install W2K again on different directory eg. c:\winnt_new or something like that.

 

Once you finished your installation, it will reboot. You will see two OS selection. Select the new one. Logon with new admin.

 

You will see all the files then you can copy or burn in CD, anything you want to do.

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your quick reply but Dai I tried to install Win XP but it doesn't work. there is no effect of cd on the computer. The windows go through the same processes and displays as it is and same dialog box with user name and password.

 

I've WIN 2000 NT professional, so is it the problem? I mean i must have to install WIN 2000? Or that was the fault of XP cd?

I see, ask in the forum....lol,

 

boot it from the disk and it will prompt you to change your password on DOS mode. once you are done. Take that disk out and boot your computer on normal way.

 

Then apply the password that you recently changed.You will get through.

 

Damn...if you goto expert-exchange for the same question they will charge you....lol

 

GOOD LUCK

BTW, linux boot disk can fit on floppy

 

For security reason, since you are breaking system, ican't give you link, but it does fit on 1 floppy.

Hi Rose,

Welcome back. a long time huh?

 

 

Newapasa bro,

I forgot to say that you can use W2K for parallel installation, if you have XP then you can upgrade booting from CD or you can still install in different directory or partition.

 

Yeh, do not select to format using different file system, just select "leave the something like that....." while installing.

Newapasa bro,

 

What's the updates?

Did you manage to change the BIOS settings and boot from the CD?

 

If you are still having a problem then

 

simply create W2K boot disk from other computer using makeboot32.exe

Find makeboot32.exe if you are using other W2K pro from the cd.

go to start type cmd

then change the prompt to d: (assuming D: is your CD drive)

then goto appropriate path where makeboot32.exe is.

type makeboot32.exe a then press enter

 

then it will ask you for floppy drive. once it will finish it will ask you to insert another floppy drive. just label them.

 

or

 

simply download Windows 2000 boot disk You need 4 floppies.

 

 

 

use the first floppy and start you PC.

it will ask for 2, 3 and 4 then it will start reading from the W2K pro CD.

later just change the path to install to new directory. Then you are in business.
