Hi folks. I have an older Dell with XP Home that I'm working on. Currently getting "unable to log you on because of an account restriction" whenever I try to log on, under any account. I've tried using Password Cracker to reset the passwords (and it seems to have an option to remove "disabled and locked" status, but i never worked). Online hunting led me to try a repair install, but the BIOS/motherboard refuses to let me boot to the CD drive. The BIOS sees the CD, and it's first on the boot order. I hear the drive spin up and then it jumps on past to the next thing in the boot order. No F-keys or Delete ever bring up a boot menu option either.
Ugh. Any thoughts? Thanks!
