Pnordahl Password Reset–USB Version

Filed under: Uncategorized — solutionsthroughit @ 13:57

Wow.  Had to reset a password on an XP machine, and was on site without any DVD/CD’s.  Pulled out a trusty USB flash drive, and was able to simply copy the boot files over, run the bootloader installer (DO THIS IN AN ELEVATED CMD PROMPT).  Yes, I forgot the elevated prompt the first time Smile.

http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/ is the link to grab the download from, instructions and documentation a-plenty!
