  • Can I create a CD on XP to get Lost or blank Vista Password?

    In the midst of moving I lost and cannot remember my Vista Laptop password; I have another Laptop with an XP operating system. Will this work to burn the CD on the XP system and boot from the XP created CD on my Vista PC to recover my password or enter a new one?

    Any thoughts on a better way to find my password without doing a complete reinstall and wiping out all my data?

    Thanks in advance.

    Burning a CD has nothing to do with the OS. WHAT are you burning exactly, the XP Password Recovery toolset? If so, you'll need the Vista one instead.

      I am trying to create an ISO CD to attempt to get my Lost or a blank Vista Password; I was told that burning the ISO CD would not work on an XP OS.

        ISOs can be burned from any OS as long as the burning SW supports it (which 99% of them do).

          yup - if the ISO is already bootable then I suggest ISOrecorder - it's fast, simple, and works on XP like a charm.

          If you need to *make* a bootable CD from scratch, as long as you burn it correctly to disc it will boot on any computer that has the supported hardware.

            Understood, and I am glad I can create the bootable CD on an XP machine.

            Now, where can I get a Password Recovery toolset for Vista? As mentioned earlier, all of my Vista enabled PC Materials/CDs' are either lost or in an unlocated moving box.
