When the PC tries to boot into Windows home, it goes to the blue screen of death and gives me an error that says: Window cannot load the hive file or its log or alternate. It is either corrupt, damaged or missing. It then does a memory dump and reboots.
I have tried to use the Dell Reinstallation CD to repair the windows installation, but it keeps asking for the Administrator password. The PC owner did not even know he had one. We have tried every possible password that he would use, all to no avail.
Is there a way to bypass this password so I can repair the system. Last, last resort would be to reload XP.
