Reset windows 7 password hp


Hello,

You may try the below steps to reset or recover the windows login password:

1) Insert either your Windows 7 installation DVD, or a Windows 7 System Repair disc, into your optical drive and then restart your computer. If you have either on a flash drive, that'll work too.

Note: If you don't have original Windows 7 media and never got around to making a system repair disc, don't worry. As long as you have access to any other Windows 7 computer (another in your home or a friend's will work fine), you can burn a system repair disc for free.

2) After your computer boots from the disc or flash drive, click Next on the screen with your language and keyboard choices.

Tip: Don't see this screen or do you see your typical Windows 7 logon screen? Chances are good that your computer booted from your hard drive (like it normally does) instead of from the disc or flash drive you inserted, which is what you want. See the appropriate link in the tip from Step 1 above for help.

3) Click on the Repair your computer link.

Note: If you booted with a system repair disc instead of a Windows 7 installation disc or flash drive, you won't see this link. Just move on to Step 4 below.

4) Wait while your Windows 7 installation is located on your computer.

5) Once your installation is found, take note of the drive letter found in the Locationcolumn. Most Windows 7 installations will show D: but yours may be different.

Note: While in Windows, the drive that Windows 7 is installed on is probably labeled as the C: drive. However, when booting from Windows 7 install or repair media, a hidden drive is available that usually isn't. This drive is given the first available drive letter, probably C:, leaving the next available drive letter, probably D:, for the next drive - the one with Windows 7 installed on it.

Hope this helps..

Hi ,I have HP Pav DV6 with windows 7.But I want to install windows server 2003 & its not allowing me.I want to make it dual boot,Plzz help.I need to do it urgently...


Hi,
Please understand that Windows 7 uses different startup files and procedures so it is expected that the original Windows Windows 7 system cannot be booted if you install a new dual boot Windows Server 2003 system. If you would like to install Windows Server 2003 on another partition, please do that first. After that, Windows Server 2003 will boot but WIndows 7 not. However, we can try the following method to make Windows Vista work again: Insert the Windows 7 disk into DVD-ROM. Click Start, click Accessories, right-click the command-prompt shortcut, and then click Run as Administrator. Type the following command at a command prompt and press Enter: Drive:\boot\Bootsect.exe /NT60 All In this command, Drive is the drive where the Windows 7 installation media is located. Note The boot folder for this step is on the DVD drive. 4. type the following commands at a command prompt and press Enter. Note In the commands below, Drive is the drive where Windows 7 is installed. Drive:\Windows\system32\Bcdedit /create {ntldr} /d "Windows Server 2003" Drive:\Windows\system32\Bcdedit /set {ntldr} device partition=x: (Note: x: is the drive letter for the active partition. For example, if 2003 is installed on C drive, device partition=c: ) Drive:\Windows\system32\Bcdedit /set {ntldr} path \ntldr Drive:\Windows\system32\Bcdedit /displayorder {ntldr} /addlast
5. Restart the computer.

Windows 7 will always boot to drive letter C: in multiboot configurations.


When configuring a Multi-boot configuration using Windows operating systems, you need to install Windows Versions oldest to newest on separate partitions. In doing so, Windows 7 is going to be installed to Drive D: or E: or such. In all previous versions of Windows, if you have a multi-boot configuration, the drive letter for that OS is always the same as the drive where it was installed.

Windows 7 does things a bit differently. EXAMPLE: I have 3 partitions on my hard drive. C:, D: and E:. XP on C: Vista on D: Windows 7 on E: When I boot to XP, the boot drive letter is C: When I boot to Vista, the boot drive letter is D: (Simple) Well, I learned the hard way that when you boot to Windows 7 from a partition other than C:, it will show the boot drive as C: in Windows 7 (It swaps drive letters with the boot drive and C: transparently). When you boot to the other partitons, the drive letters are as they should be and the change is only effective while booted to the Windows 7 Partition.

DVD drive Read problem in my Dell Dimension 3000


Make sure you have any and all Windows 7 updates from Microsoft, along with any updates for your DVD drive for use with Windows 7. Some components work fine using Vista SP2 drivers, but some will need an update to work with Windows 7.

This Microsoft site might help verify if your DVD drive is compatible with Windows 7:

I can't access my drive, even though all my tests say it's fine.


Right click on my computer and click manage then click on disk management. Find your drive and give it a drive letter. It probably just needs a drive letter so you can recognize it in my computer,,,Good Luck and let me know if this works...Darren
