Hello,

SO,....around christmas 2015 I devided a HD into partions, and installed:

XP pro (sata driver)

WIN 7 Home 64 bit

WIN 10 (I think, build on WIN 7 pro + free update)

 

NOW,...2,5 year later, I needed this computer (first since install) so I fired it up.

But......

Asking password to start up windows,... all 3 partions.

Ahhh, I made a hint,..very clear...what is password....GREAT !!

But,.....NO

Wrong password, for all partions :(

 

I dont get it. Im sure I know the right login password.

 

Online, what to do. Found:  Ophcrack v3.6.0 for WIN XP

I download, burn image, abd boot on it.

This I get:

Searching tables in: /media/saO/tables

Tables found:

      /media/srO/tables/xp_free_small

WARNING: No partition containing hashes found

Press ENTER to exit.......

 

After this, I call out for help. I have no idea what to do.

I found so many guidlines online, ..but I guess, Im big time afraid to damage my installation. It took me weeks :(

 

Is there a timelimit on passwords ? 

 

Do any have a simple solution for me ?  Wich will work.

You are probaably not going to forget this password now, but for safety's sake I suggest you make a note of it and put it somewhere you can find it again. Bedside cabinet/table ?
