Question about Microsoft Windows Xp Home Edition Sp2 English Mlp Na Only Additional License (n0901086) for PC
Hi I Have made a real problem for myself. I could not get into my pc other than the os option page. it would not start, so I tried pressing F8 and chose safe mode, it would not start in safe mode. So I tried load last known good configuration. That would not work either. So I chose (step 1) reboot using xp cd (step 2)windows setup screen i chose R (step 3) I chose 1 c:\windows. at c:\windows I typed the following REN C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM SYSTEM.OLD (enter) COPY C:\WINDOWS\REPAIR\SYSTEM C:WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG (enter) then rebooted system. the windows xp logo came up then a dialogue box came up saying approx; "wass.exe invalid password returned" and then it just continously rebooted so I went back to step 1 and now at step 3 instead of returning the command prompt c:\windows it now asks for the administrators password, so i tried the password I normally use, and no good. I tried admin and administrator both no good. So by this stage i am truly worried as there are alot of important files that I had not backed up in last 2 weeks. so I swapped the hard drive and set it as a slave in another pc, this worked as far as seeing any files in folders on my drive but it will not show me the 'my documents folder' I suppose this is because the my documents folder on the master drive takes precedence over the slave drive? so i hope i have explained o.k here are my questions. 1, GULP! can anyone help 2. what is the default password in xp 3. how do I put right the mess with my harddrive back in original machine? 4. how can I acces the my documents folder on the drive from another machine? please can anyone help with this one as it is going to get me in big trouble if I dont get it sorted. regards Ray

The problem is that the dismounted "My Documents" folder is encrypted as doesn't allow anything to be seen or moved; all other folders and files can be copied just fine, except that doesn't do him any good. So the issue is: when the former Windows XP boot disc is dismounted, and remounted as a secondary or USB drive, and when you know the user's password (or whatever level password got you into the My Documents folder in the first place), how do you use that informatin to gain access to the My Documents folders so you can salvage those files for use on a replacement/restored system?

Reboot with CD,choose "R",choose "C" windows,and at command prompt,type "fixboot" when asked to confirm do so,then type "fixmbr" at command prompt and confirm.then reboot computer[if that doesnt work,and it should ] just clear the CMOS chip on the motherboard(instructions are available in motherboard maker web site in manual)this will definately reset the boot routine,you will have to enter option menu and reinstall normal preferences like booting to cd first at all times to prevent this problem in the future and lastly,default password is [enter]button :)
