  • Problem with boot disk to change Admin password

    I bought an old server from a previous employer to do some work at home. It was working fine and I used it for several weeks. A friend of mine suggested that I should change it from the previous company's "Domain" to my internal network "Workstation". Once I did that it would no longer accept the Administrator password.

    I downloaded and created the bootable disk. I have tried both the floppy and the CD with the same results.

    It goes through the boot-up routine and gets stuck right after "mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice".

    Server Specs:
    Compact Proliant
    Intel 500 Mhz 512 Cache - Dual
    256 MB RAM
    18.2 GB SCSI - Dual
    Windows 2000 Server (not sure what service pack)


    Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    remove the mouse?

    neither the CD(s) or the boot disk require mouse support.

    There are a few different utilities out there as well. which are you using?
