we had a server crash and lost our profiles in sbs2008. most has been restored with profwiz but we have a computer that has a virtual xp installed within windows 7 for a certain piece of software that will only run on xp pro. the user and password combo will not work on the virtual. does anyone have any ideas how to get into this virtual box without rebuilding?
