    As in my other post, I'm working on a machine that's having lssas problems. I'm trying to get into the XP recovery console, but I don't know the admin password.

    I'm under the impression that it was setup at the factory, so does anyone know where I can find out what it is? I may have to try and call HP, but that's my last resort since the machine isn't even mine.

    Thanks,

    you said on a machine, am I to assume that it's not your machine? it may not even have an admin password, when you come up to the recovery console, select the installation, and it asks for the password, just push enter, if there is no password, it will go to the c prompt.

    No, it is not my machine. I did just hit enter when prompted for the admin password in the recovery console and it did not take it.

    The guy who owns the machine e-mailed tech support and they replied saying the admin password IS blank, but it would not take it.

    Oh well, at this point, a reformat would be easier then trying to figure out the password.

    Thanks,
