Your Boot sector is screwed up, The Boot disk might work, but the chances are greater that you will have to install a fresh copy of Windows or Other operating System disk. Good Luck.

Computer plays a vital role nowadays. No matter for the business man or home computer user, they all need use PC to do work, watch TV & Video, play online games and so on. Indeed, in some sense computer is already becoming a part of our life. Most of computer users get use to create a Windows administrator password in case of privacy data lack. So, you can image that there are more and more people need to gain access to their PC when Windows XP administrator passwords forgot. Absolutely, you want get out of this situation without formatting and re-installing the operating system? Thus here I point out the easiest and safest method that can help you recover Windows XP administrator password. Let's roll it.

Part 1: Select Windows XP administrator password recovery tool

As you can't login Windows XP operating system, the only thing you can do is making a Windows password recovery disk and using the disk to recover your Windows password, and then you need:

1> a blank CD disk.
2> a computer that can download from Internet and have a CD writer.
3> a program that can recover Windows password. In this tutorial we highly recommended Windows Login Recovery and use it as an example.

Part 2: Recover the forgotten Windows XP administrator password

Step 1. Download Windows Login Recovery from the official website.

Step 2. Install Windows Login Recovery on your Windows XP computer, then launch it (When launch the program, you will see the ISO image file has automatically entered. Please leave it as the default).

Step 3. Choose a device to burn the ISO image file, we select the CD writer.

Step 4. Click Burn and then start to burn the ISO image file (Please insert the blank CD disk into the CD writer first). When the burning completes, click OK and the disk will eject itself.

Step 5. Change your locked computer's BIOS settings to make it boot from CD-ROM: (3 steps)

1). Reboot your locked computer, press F2 or Delete to enter your BIOS setup during the booting.

2). On the Boot tab, set the Boot Device Priority. Make sure the CDROM Drives is before Hard Disk Drives.

3). Press F10 and Y followed by Enter to save the BIOS settings and reboot your locked computer.

Step 6. Use the created disk to recover the Windows XP administrator password: (5 steps)

1). Insert the created disk into the CD-ROM of the locked computer and reboot it (When the locked computer boots, you can see Windows Login Recovery initializing).

2). Enter the ID number of the hard drive volume that Windows is installed.

3). Enter the ID number for the User Name.

4). Enter y (yes) to confirm your action or n (no) to deny the action, then hit Enter.

5). Enter y to continue to remove passwords of other accounts or n to finish (If you enter n, the locked computer will reboot, please eject the created disk first).

Congratulations! You have successfully removed the Windows XP administrator password. Now you can login Windows XP without password and you can create a new one.

Turn on computer and get promt no op sys try to load a new op sys like win 7 from my win 7 disk that I got and it say no harddrive


If you can get BIOS to open, then check to see if it is booting from a CDROM first. If you have an OS disk, put this in an try to boot. If it shows a hard drive, remove partition and then recreate and format it. This should fix it so that you can install Windows. One time I had to do it 2 or 3 time, but it finally worked. Then 2 weeks later the HD failed, as if it was trying to warn me all along. If you are using PATA drives make sure you have the jumpers set right for master and slave (I know it is old school, but you never know.)

I want to boot from cd to change windows from xp to 98


enter the bios set up on start up. Go to boot sequence, change 1st option to cdrom instead of main drive. Save and exit. Let it boot up, put 98 disk in cdrom. Shut down, reboot and win 98 installation will begin asking you to over write existing ops sys. Choose yes and the install should be a breeze after this. Once xp is installed, dont forget to return to the bios and change back your boot sequence to hard drive as primary /master.
