  • no password but prompted recovery

    I am trying to repair a win xp installation using recovery console. After I answer the prompt for "which windows installation would you like to log onto...", I am prompted for the Administrator password.
    The problem is that I do not use a password. I've always just clicked on my user id without putting a password in. I've been forced to put in a password every now and then, and every time I leave the old password field blank and leave the new password field blank. This always worked. So when I access the recovery console logically I should just hit enter, but I keep getting "The password is not valid...

    Any ideas?

    Hi, I too am having this problem. I am trying to repair my windows and when prompted for a password (i always left it blank) i just type return and then nothing happens (it just takes me to a DOS prompt).

    Did you manage to fix it ?

    Thanks
