after restoring SYSTEM got a password problem ->SOS!!!
Posted on 2006-05-20
My notebook hp (compaq nc4000) first could not start up because of the corruption of file "system". I got this message
Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
So i plug my hdd into my friend's notebook (Twinhead) (as i don't have CD-ROM on my notebook) to boot from a WindowsXP disk in to Recovery Console and copy file "system".
ren system system.bak
Plug the hdd back into my notebook and turn it on. WIndows started but i got another message:
WHEN TRYING TO UPDATE A PASSWORD THIS RETURN STATUS INDICATES THAT THE VALUE PROVIDED AS THE CURRENT PASSWORD IS NOT CORRECT.
After a few seconds, computer restarted and the same thing happended. I guest it's because i did'nt copy the files "sam" and "security" but now i can not go back to Recovery Console, as it requests an admin's password although there was not any password before.
Can somebody tell me what to do? Any help would be very appriciated!!!!
