I am trying to run an older version of Adobe Acrobat in Windows 7, however it is not compatable with the 64 bit OS. I ran across the tutorial on how to run XP mode for software applications that are not compatible with Win 7 OS. I went through the steps, but am getting an error when trying to run in XP Mode. It tells me that i need to enter my BIOS settings upon booting up and enable the option for XP Mode. However when i try to do this, I am propted for a password. I have know idea what it is and am trying to figure out how to work around this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Consult the manual for your motherboard/computer to learn how to reset the password.
