I forgot pword for BootIt NG maintenance. I want to completely wipe the HD so my son can use computer to install XP. I don't need BING on that machine anymore. I understand that I need to have a bootable copy of BING on a flash drive so I can boot from it and reset/erase pword. Not sure how to do all that. any help?

thanks much.

You don't need BootIt NG to wipe the hard disk.

Burn as an ISO image to a CD and boot from it.
