If you have a repair disk, of course you can try it to crack Windows 2000 password. But if you don't have maybe you can consider using Ophcrack. Most time it is helpful but cannot guarantee 100% successful reset. Above all, the last one should be the best method for your Windows 2000 password reset. Another safe and effective software you can try, Anmosoft Windows Password Reset, which I have used and you can visit from:

If the BIOS password, some dell's have a jumper to reset that.
A piece of software ERD commander may enable you to reset a windows account password.

How can i istall windows server 2000 on Dell Poweredge T300


Windows 2000 is not supported on this machine. The closest you could get is using a hypervisor XenServer or VMWare ESXi and then installing Windows 2000 on a virtual machine.

To install Windows server 2000 on that machine you will need Dell PowerEdge™ Installation and Server Management CD you can download ISO file from this link:

Problems installing windows server 2000


Hello,

Make sure the hardware is compatiable with Server 2000. Most of the time you will run into a stale if hardware is not compatiable or windows does not have a compatiable driver for those devieces. If you have the drivers for your hardware, install those at the begining of the server install. (You will see at the bottom of the screen press F3 to install 3rd party drives. After the drivers are installed, you should be able to proced.

Good Luck,

My Dell PowerEdge 840 will not allow me to install Windows 2000 Server software. Evidently, the 840's graphics card does not contain the drivers for Windows 2000 Server. Is there a solution?


I am not sure where you got your information but I just checked Dell's website and they have Windows 2000 drivers for your server which include the video driver.

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WNT5&osl=EN&catid=-1&impid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=PWE_P4_840&hidos=WNET&hidlang=en&TabIndex=)

If you are still having a problem then you should call Dell support. Every Dell server has lifetime free phone support.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Need to get to OS on Dell servers. Password protected


If they are Dell they likely have the licence key sticker on them.
Get a Windows server 2000 CD(you can download it and it will be legal if you instal it with a purchased licence key.) and perform a clean install of it using the licence key on the sticker of each server.

Beside administrator, were there any other user accounts on the machine? If so, you can log in as one of those. If they have admin rights, even better.

Depending on the lock out policy that was set in windows, try it again. In some cases, it may be a few hours, in some cases, it may be days. All depends on how the policy was set up.

If this all fails, your next option would be to reload the OS and start all over. You can use the original instal disks that came with it.
