No the SAM file contains hashes of windows passwords and can only be accessed offline. The SAM file is located at %systemroot%\system32\config. Mount the disc with BartPE or any liveCD and you can copy it from there.

All you need to do is wipe out all the passwords. A little googling or searching the forum would have provided the answer.
