To those you who know me, know that im not in a habit making double post/thread’s but this time I desperately need your help. I need to fix this today, I’m in a lot of trouble here I am unable to log in to my Vista 64bit Ultimate account & I have vital project that I need to finish.
Please read thru everything as I have only put relevant information regarding this problem.
Yesterday after I back home from work I tried to log in to my PC as I always do. To my surprise it wouldn’t accept my windows Login password. I know it’s not my Caps Lock and I know it’s not my keyboard. I also know no one changed it from my family. Last night I stayed up until 4am trying to by pass it (only gat 3h of sleep today, I’m at work)
Here is what I tried to resolve the issue:
1st I tried to do “System restore” tried it for 2 different days, but no luck. (The restore was successful however)
2nd I tried doing a boot CD to crack the pass, using 2 different programs from 2 different websites.
(Ophcrack Live CD) this program was definitely working, until it told me that “No HASH file was found” that is where the passwords are being stored.
Here is my setup. I have Vista Ultimate 64bit (that I need the pass for) I only have one user account for it(Main). I also have a dual XP boot on the same drive (just fyi its in raid-0) I am able to get to the XP and can see all my Vista’s files. Is there something that maybe I can change in the directory to change or make my password working? Like I sad I can see the Vistas files from XP. Someone also told me If I would to boot using “safe mode” I would log in as “Administrator” and will not have to enter the pass (im at work now so cant try it) is that true? If so, I can then change my password that way right?
“Please Obe one Kenobi you are my only hope”
