some guy has put together a single floppy or CD which contains things needed to edit the passwords on most systems.

The bootdisk supports standard (dual)IDE controllers, and most SCSI-controllers with the drivers supplied in a seperate archive below.

It does not need any other special hardware, it will run on 486 or higher, with at least 32MB (I think) ram or more. Unsupported hardware: MCA and EISA not supported, i2o may not work, USB keyboard may not work. Quite a few IDE and SCSI raid-controllers may not work either.

DANGER WILL ROBINSON! If used on users that have EFS encrypted files, and the system is XP or later service packs on win2k, all encrypted files for that user will be UNREADABLE! and cannot be recovered unless you remember the old password again

Please see the Frequently Asked Questions before emailing questions to me. Thanks!
