I have an HP Probook 4540s and cannot reset the password. I tried to reboot it with the shift key down to get to advanced options to try to enter DOS command mode so I could enter some reset commands, but it keeps coming back to the main user screen. Since there is only one user and no other admin account, I can't get in.
So I downloaded Ophcrack LiveCD (no tables) and burned the ISO to a disk. I changed the BIOS so the machine would boot from the CD, but it won't recognize it as bootable.
So I assumed that the ISO would make it bootable but it doesn't. How can I get the CD to become bootable with the Ophcrack ISO? And does anyone know if version 3.6 LiveCD is going to work with Windows 8? I can't find a specific Windows 8 download.
Otherwise, if anyone has a better way for me to reset the pw or get rid of it so I can enter a new one, I'd really appreciate it! I hate Windows 8, just might go back to Windows 7, to avoid this mess again!
Thanks in advance, guys!
