I am running an old Gateway Profile 4 w/ 40GB HDD 2.40GHz CPU and 768 MB RAM
Currently it has gOS installed - but I have no idea what my username and password are, so can't login.
I am trying to boot a slipstreamed Win XP disc so that I can overwrite everything with just XP.
But, when I "press any key to boot from CD" I get a message about "checking system configurations" and then the screen just goes blank and nothing happens.
What do I need to do in order to get around this hiccup?
If it is forgotten password there are other ways to remove it. search in the internet and you might find the solution. I have done this before. But i dont think its right to discuss how to do it and what the tools are in public
