explains how to replace the admin pw using another OS in another partition
on the same computer.
If I got it correctly, the idea is based on an assumption, that LOGON.SCR
is executed before w2k asks for a pw.
If so, renaming a copy of cmd.exe to LOGON.SCR from another OS and
re-booting into the original OS, will provide access to cmd.exe before
logging in and allow to change the admin pw using
net user administrator new_pw
I followed the instruction and yet, as before, I am asked for pw before I
can do anything else.
I checked – the new LOGON.SCR now has the same size as cmd.exe and is sitting in WINNTSystem32 in the partition in question
