Re: Hiren's Boot CD
Yahoo!! I got it! I had already put it in the closet, when I decided it wouldn't hurt to take it apart. I mean, take it all the way apart. I've taken apart laptops before, not a lot of them. Maybe 10...and I figured the odds were stacked against me that I'd be able to find a jumper to reset the BIOS pwd, or even find the BIOS battery; but, I did. In this particular Tablet PC there's a BIOS battery, which is soldered and not removable, and a detachable battery that reminds me of something I'd find in an R/C car...a small R/C car.
I just finished putting it back together, leaving the HDD out, then crossing my fingures, I turned it on, and VOULA, it said there was a device error and it let me enter BIOS SETUP without prompting for a password!
Now, on to the easy parts, cracking the OS passwords! Ha! Where there's a will, there's a way!
