    I’m installing windows XP on a friends PC.
    I removed ME, formatted the drive using NTFS, and got part way through the XP install when there was an error and install was aborted.
    The computer now says its restarting the install process and continually restarts.
    When I boot from the xp cd, and go to repair console so I can re-format, it asks for an administrator password to access the C drive. I never got far enough through the install to set up a password. Is there a default password windows uses or a way around this so I can re format and start again?
    I’m sure its a simple solution for someone, but I can’t seem to figure it out.
