    I’ve just been asked to perform a clean install of an existing server that is currently running Server 2003. I’ve inserted the CD, checked that the Boot order recognises the CD-ROM, but I’m given the option of entering Server 2003 normally or of performing a Windows recovery. When I go into Server 2003, it gives me the username and access window. I do not have access to either of these, as the people responsible have appropriately moved on. When I enter Windows recovery, it gives me the option of installing NT, but still asks me for Administrator’s password.

    How do I just do a clean install, without knowing all of these things?

    Thanks for any help or hints.
