I have a server where we have lost the administator password. Can anyone provide me with a tool that I can boot off of CD or floppy to get in and change the password? (or delete it)

I guess when you said that you want to boot into that server, you mean a real server. :p These password changing software can be used on real server and not virtual server.

I have tried it on Virtual PC 2007 and it does not work. :(
