Hi coyoteangela2003,

Are you referring to Recovery Console? If you do not have a Administrator password assigned, you can just leave it blank and press enter.

Or are you referring to XP Repair Installation of Windows? I'm pretty sure they do not ask for Administrator password when you try to do a repair install.

Let us know more information so that we can provide more additional help.

At which particular part did you see this message? And what other error message you had?

Please post in more details so that I can understand your problem more clearly.

I'm glad to hear that you got your system back working. That's good.

And remember to BACKUP! That's very important just in case you met with any other problem in future.

Cheers
