  • XP SP3 Recovery Password

    When I boot to an XP install CD and choose R to start a Recovery CD, after selecting the appropriate Windows installation, I am asked for the administrator password. Nothing I have used or "blank" works. The problem was probably caused by Dell not using the proper version of sysprep to prepare the drives.

    This article is very helpful for changing the administrator password for logging into the GUI. It does not change the password for booting into the Recovery Console. I have tried numerous solutions, but none has worked. Hopefully someone in this esteemed group wil have a solution.
