    I know how to dump or acquire login password hashes from the SAM/System hives. What I’d like to dump are hashes from the startup password that’s set when a user runs Syskey from within Win 7/8. You can see what I mean at http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/243880-syskey-set-startup-password-lock-unlock-windows.html. I understand that the hash is stored in the Security hive, but I haven’t found any utilities that can dump this particular hash. Thanks
