Question about Dell Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
There are a few similar problems here already, but none quite like this one.
I created a dual-boot system with Vista (the original 'native' system) and XP (added later). It took a minute, but i got it to switch to Vista again using Vista Boot Pro, but now i can't return to XP. I boot from the XP CD-ROM and it goes through installing the files and all that. Then it goes to the command prompt, and asks for my admin password. But i never set one, i just clicked 'next' when asked to.
So, i need to know either a) how to make the prompt accept nothing for the password, b) how to set an admin password from Vista or command prompt or c) how to completely uninstall XP from Vista or command prompt.
Hey, its better to setup a password for the account vs not haveing one, the limitation for now allowing to login with no password on command prompt was added becouse a hacker could easyly take over a pc which didnt have a administrative password set up.
To set up the password in commant prompt type
net user Administrator *
Net user <username> * command changes the user password.
