We recently purchased a company that went bankrupt. They had 6 CAD machines running off of a central server (and what a dinosaur it is). When they went out of business, everyone went their separate way, and now, after the purchase, we can't access their drawing database on the server, because there is a boot password that we have no idea what it is. Is there any way to hack or reset the password so that we can access the database for their drawings? There is nothing illegal here. Everything belongs to us. The machine manufacturer told us that they couldn't get in. They cracked the BIOS (?) password, but after that, they said we're SOL. I don't think so. HELP! This is a real dinosaur. I'd say, later 80's machine. I have no idea the make, model, specs, etc., so any input is most desired. Thanks!
