I just bought a HP Pavilion a6683w desktop computer running on Windows Vista (Home Basic)from somebody; it didn't come with any installation/recovery disks. The password they gave me to their computer was wrong and I can't get back in contact with them, so I was told my only option was to reboot the computer using a boot disk created from another computer. There is only one account, and no guest account.

Is this the right way to go (the boot disk)? Is there any other way of getting by the password? If so, how do I create a boot disk for a vista computer (I do have a vista laptop by the way)?

Thanks in advance!
