    Code:
    If your computer no longer as a working administrator account left to use, you could enable the built-in Administrator account using an available option in this tutorial to have to fix any issues needing an administrator account.
    Thank you. Now fixed.

    Just an FYI for anyone trying to do this with more recent copy of Windows. I just tried to follow these instructions for Option Six and could not get to the Advanced Startup to open the command prompt. But I was able to by holding down the SHIFT key while clicking restart. After that everything went fine.

    Brink,

    In Option 4, there is a mistaken [out-of-date?] reference to "Option Six" that I think you'll want to delete.
    [That's what MickeyCT was referring to.]

    Thank you. The "Option Six" reference is now removed.

    Thanks for the tutorial! Very detailed. I used option 5 and it got me back in like a charm. 1 question though. What about unloading the hive REM_SAM that was loaded? I went back to look for it and its gone. Thanks for answering.

    Hello, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    The two articles below are good for more details about the SAM hive that will hopefully help some.

    That's way above my understanding. My question is what happens if the temporary hive (REM_SAM) that was loaded is not unloaded? After changing the line 38 value to 10 I just hit the "X" button and rebooted. I went through option 5 again and this time the value for line 38 is not 10 or 11...its 13. Just making sure I didn't screw anything up. Thanks.

    It's fine. The SAM hive setting for this is for the account's status. I'm not sure what 13 is for though.

    Brink,

    At
    Option 5, Step 5
    might it be worth warning people that the drive to find is the one with
    a Windows folder AND a Users folder AND a PerfLogs folder
    and cannot be
    X:\
    because that will stop them mistakenly choosing [for example] the installation disk or the virtual OS disk [X:\].

    All the best,
