  • Forgot admin password on notebook with no cd or floppy drive

    Hey There,

    Great article! I tired Austrumi v0.9.2 but i could not figure it out.

    I have a dell latitude x1 notebook with no floppy drive, no cd-rom just USB ports. I want to format the harddrive and get it working again.

    Do you have any advice?

    Thanks,
    Eric

    Beg, borrow or steal (or even buy) an external USB floppy drive or CD-ROM

    Alternatively, does your Dell support a Network Boot?

      dell does support a network boot, however i have never done one before. If you can provide assistance with that it would be appreciated.
