I had a hard drive problem with my computer, so I booted up with Win ME which doesn't have NTFS support and took some files from my Win XP computer to make it work. By mistake I moved a file instead of copying it and now my computer won't boot and says its missing this file. When I ran the recovery thing on the Win XP disc it said i needed the administrator password, and that isn't even setup, so I'm just going to hook the hard drive up to another computer and put the file on, but its a HP and i can't remove the hard drive so i need to take the whole tower. Does anyone know of a GUI or something i can bootup into where i can copy things from my removable storage to my HD? If that doesn't exist, it would be pretty convienent.
I was copying the files needed for NTFS support, the file was C_1252.NLS. When I go to recovery console, it won't let me do anything because it needs an administrator password, and to my knowledge none was setup. Any advice?
actually there is one setup at the very beginning. When you originally go through the setup it will ask you to create a password for the administrator account. Try some of the passwords that you use. Otherwise, you may have to reformat.
no need to reformat, just search on google how to recover winxp admin password and you'll come to know [content edited] lot of ways. also you have linux bootable disks with mini versions of linux on it so you can run the OS without installing it. Try the google search 1st, you'll come to a website from a guy called petri (I guess) it has a whole lotta MCSE stuff...
if it doesnt workout send me a pm with yr e-mail ID i'll forward you the documents I have it on my mail.
