Hello, 

 

So my roommate, who uses windows 7, has locked herself out of her computer.  The folks over at the windows 7 subforum have been talking me through downloading ophcrack and trying to put it into a USB with my MacBook Air.  

 

Our progress is here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/528137/locked-out-of-administrator-account/

 

However, I have been unsuccessful in using the terminal to get the program onto a USB.  I wonder if someone would be able to take a look at the other forum and help me with this part?

Just burn it to CD if you have the resources (a blank CD), much less drama.

 

Create a CD with the ISO though, rather than copying the ISO to it.

I would love to, however, I have a MacBook Air.  I don't have an external CD drive either.

Sorry, my Mac skills are highly limited. I can assist you to get the administrator password if a Windows repair/install disk is available though.

That would be the best.  Unfortunately she doesn't have one.  My Mac skills are highly limited too - hence posting in the Mac OS forum.

In theory, you should be able to use UNetbootin to create the bootable USB drive and thus not have to mess around with the Terminal.  There is a link to download a Mac version on the page.

 

http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/#requirements

 

These should be the instructions for your purpose after downloading the Mac version:

That other ISO I sent you Daenerys should work with that... in theory.

neither of those options are what she's looking for.... has no DVD burner and wants to burn a 3rd party bootable ISO to USB, not create a win 7 install.

I know its been more than a month, but for anyone else looking for the same thing, the answer is to use the "dd" command. Here is a tutorial:
