|My sister has a pc which will not boot following a suspected virus attack. It gets as far as windows is loading and bank ... BSoD!|
I've popped in a winxp disc in the cd drive and booted from there choosing R for recovery console and choose the one and only windows install on C: by choosing 1 and hitting enter. next I'm prompted do enter the administration password?? but since there wasn't a password set to our knowledge I hit enter but it still asks for a password? Next I try and remove the CMOS battery for a few minutes to clear any passwords (but I guess this would only clear any bios passwords and not windows passwords). So, how do I get to run the recovery console without knowing this password?
