Default Recovery Console

I'm currently formatting both my desktop and latptop and putting XP Pro on them. The desktop went perfect, however the laptop is giving me a problem. After booting from the CD ROM I pressed R for the Recovery Console so it will enter DOS mode and I can format the C drive. It then asks for the Admin Password. Well my Admin PW is cleared, yet pressing the enter key I get a invalid PW response. Even when I change my admin PW to something, that doesnt work either, always an invalid response. 3 tries and your out, rebooting again..... any help?

Default Re: Recovery Console

Are you just trying to format? Why don't you do that with the windows wizzard from the Cd?
