I have in my posession a good laptop I used when working for another company a couple of years ago. I'd completely forgotton that I even had it until my wife found it whilst tidying some kitchen cupboards out last weekend. Problem is I can't use it as it has safeboot installed and I can't remember the password.

Now I'm not interested in the data and I have reinstalled windows XP Pro and in the process opted to format the harddisk. However, safeboot is still hanging in there and now won't even let me boot the computer and complaining about installation corruption. Is this possible to resolve this and remove safeboot? If so how?

All suggestion welcome
