A friend bought a group of computers at auction from a business that closed down an office. There are 9 workstations, mostly dells, all running 7 pro, with stickers on the cases, and a server running 2008 Foundation server. The server has raid 1 with 3 drives (how does that work? lol) and 1 is reporting smart errors. It does boot, but we don't have any passwords; I tried NT Offline Password editor, but it throws an error at the last step of saving the changes back to the system.
The workstations are fair, and some we've tested seem to be running okay. Is there any way to disjoin the workstations properly without a password to the server? Or am I just going to have to reinstall windows 7?
If it was windows 8, I'd run the reset function, or if 10 was available yet, I'd upgrade it, and then reset it...
