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.


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

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


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:


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 ?
