  • Password crack for Win 2000 server

    Hi all,
    I'm using IBM Server 3400 with Windows 2000 Server OS. It seems my administrator password has been cracked as my server is affected with viruses(though I have symantec installed). I tried to reset the password using winternals but in vain. The tool doesnt detect the OS atall. Mine is a SATA hdd. Can anyone of to my help to let me know is there anyother way to reset the password?

    Thanks in advance,
    Shaik.

    What version of Winternals ERD Commander Pro do you have?

    Winternals ERD Commander Pro doesn't recognize your OS because it doesn't have the drivers for the SATA controller.

    Try booting to the ERD CD again but press F6 to supply your mass storage driver (your SATA controller driver). Just like you would do for the Windows operating system installation.

      Hi Jas,
      Thanks for the reply. I'm using Winternal ERD Commander 2005. I followed the step which u suggested to press F6, and then pressed S for additional devices option, it asked for the OEM floppy disk which i dont know. Can u adivise me on this wht floppy disk i have to load to continue the process?

      Thanks a lot.

          You'll need to download it from your motherboard/card manufacturer.

            Drawing the conclusion your password has been cracked because you have viruses is faulty logic. Not saying this isn't what happened, just that you have given incomplete information to support this conclusion.

            So I take it you have viruses and your admin password is no longer what you think it should be? So you'd like to reset your admin password? Don't have personal experience w/ Winternal but if it's doing something like a bootable live windows CD then you'll have to go to IBM and get the SATA driver as wullieb1 said.
            Cheers,

            Rick

              seriously? it wants a floppy with the onboard SATA drivers. you need the driver disk that came with the machine or you need to go download the correct drivers for your chipset. once you have them, place them on a floppy with the proper .inf file in the root of the floppy. thats it. select the (should be the only) driver displayed after pressing the f6...

              proceed...
