I don't know about TS (yet I doubt them being an option), but http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/bootdisk.html will always work.

No, you can't hack it via TS. You actually need physical access to run a locksmith program on it.

Excuse me, but isn't that what *I* wrote? Even with a *link* to a recovery program?

Well, sort of. You said you weren't sure. I stated it as a fact. However, I don't need the points so if Albert1809 wants to re-assign the points to you then I am all for it.
