1. Download file:
http://www.lostpassword.com/demos/winkeyd.exe
2. Make The Floppy disk.
3. Take Win 2000 install CD
4. Boot from Win 2000 CD and when you first see blue screen (and in the below you see "press F8 .......) then press it
5. After the setup he will ask you to boot from some SCSI or FLOPPY buut from FLOOPY disk and follow instructions.
6. Administrator Password will change to 12345
