I'm thinking you have the computer to boot from a network, not the hard drive. You'll have to press the setup key (whichever the screen tells you to press when you start the machine and look for the bios setting that determines the boot order of your devices. In machines with a CD, the order should be CD first and then the hard drive. Unless you are in a corporate network environment, you would not want it to be set to boot from a network. Therefore, the third boot option should be disabled.

I forgot my password and I can only log in as a guest


You can try the below given steps to reset administrator password using guest account (you must have write access to system32 file):





1. Navigate to location C:/windows/system32



2. Copy cmd.exe file to desktop and rename it to sethc.exe



3. Now copy this sethc.exe file and paste to system 32 (when windows asks for overwriting click yes).



4. Log out from guest account and at user login screen press shift key 5 times.



5. It will open command prompt with full administrator privileges.



6. Now type "NET USER ADMINISTRATOR xyz123" (where "xyz123" can be any password according to your choice) and press enter.



7. You will see "The Command completed successfully" and then exit the command prompt and login into administrator with your new password.



If you don't have write access to system32 file then you can use stellar phoenix password recovery software to reset administrator password.

Resetting Your Forgotten Windows Password

Boot off the Windows disk and select the "Repair your computer" option from the lower left-hand corner.


Follow through until you get to the option to open the Command Prompt, which you'll want to select.
First you'll want to type in the following command to backup the original sticky keys file:



copy c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe c:\


Then you'll copy the command prompt executable (cmd.exe) over top of the sticky keys executable:


copy c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe


Resetting the Password

Once you get to the login screen, hit the Shift key 5 times, and you'll see an administrator mode command prompt.

Now to reset the password-just type the following command, replacing the username and password with the combination you want:

net user geek MyNewPassword


That's all there is to it. Now you can login.

Of course, you'll probably want to put the original sethc.exe file back, which you can do by rebooting into the installation CD, opening the command prompt, and copying the c:\sethc.exe file back to c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe.

Problem with my brand new Eee-PC,after setting it up nicely and adding two admin accounts(ie:am using the XP version!) and creating the user account passwords was fine for logging in on the first days use...


You can simply change your password. Standard OS IS Linux. With CTRL-T you can open a Terminal, then you can type:
man passwd <ENTER>
to view a brief help text for the command. Read it and you can change your password from the command line with a single command.

passwd user password <ENTER>
