I did a really stupid thing. I loaded a security system on my pc (winmagic) and I failed to write down the password. I was so sure I would remember it. I did not.
when it boots up I can only get to the screen that asks for the password.
If I hit f1, I get to some screens I do not really understand about booting from a cd.
I want to wipe off the hard drive assuming that will wipe off the security system that has locked up my hard drive. HOW do i do that? I'd like to wipe the HD and reuse it and then properly install the security software.
I read about dban but that would mean I could "see" the prompts and the wizard. All I can see is the page that asks for my password.
Any and all help gratefully received.
