I have a Compaq Notebook running Windows 2000 Pro. I have forgotten the password. I have tried F5 & F8. Safe Mode still takes me to a password dialogue box. I have put in the restore disk & at the C promt.

Question : Where is the password file for me to change or bypass to add a new password and where is the Windows box for me to load windows?

I have downloaded and read all the blurbfrom your first site. It says that I need a special program rawrite.exe to copy these files from the download to the floppy. Where do you get this program?Or have you found it unnecessary? I tried to download your disc and it is 1.5 MB too big for a floppy. Is there something I can remove from it to make it work?
Thanks for your help

If you look on that page, there is the location to download rawrite.

Also, my file is to burn to a CD. It is not intended to be used for a floppy.

Great stuff.

I downloaded the Rawrite and still had problems until I realised you had to have rawrite and the download in the same directory. It worked a treat and I've kept your file on CD for good measure.

Thanks for your help
