In the XP Recovery Console tutorial it was said that,
"In many cases when you have XP pre installed on your computer the Recovery Console will not recognize your Administrator's password. In these situations it is possible to edit a registry setting so that the Recovery Console does not ask for a password."

I am assuming that editing the registry must be done when Windows is in the various safe mode modes or has started up in normal or diagnostic modes. What if I can't get into Windows or any safe mode and are using the XP cd to get into the Recovery Console to modify the Boot.ini file for boot configuration and recovery? Are there any alternatives to a complete cleaning if the aforementioned password stituation arises?
