I need to install software on a company laptop that no one remembers the password for administrator privileges.
I have a Knoppix live boot cd and need to get into the system files to reset the password access.
When I put the cd in and boot, the hard drive doesn't come up on the desktop GUI.
Usually it shows as HDA1 or something.
It won't "mount" either.
I need to know the steps I need to take to reset the vista administrator password, but first i'll have to figure out how to get the hard drive to show, won't I?
