OK, so I got a laptop for myself from a friend, only catch is its got safeboot on it and I dont have the local ad in password, My fiend told me safeboot is really picky and will not boot if the registry is modified, i dont want to make it workse cause now at least i can boot the latop but i dont have amdin priviliges in windows(Windows Xpnull pro SP2) my quesion is if i use a tool like ultimate boot cd to reset local admin password, how will safeboot react, will it still let me boot or will safeboot lockdown and hijack my laptop?
you won't be able to use a boot cd if the drive is encrypted with SafeBoot (it's encrypted!).
Are you sure this isnt a stolen machine? As only coporate machines have SafeBoot products on them, and are usually wiped prior to disposal, it's really odd that one should end up legally in someone elses hands...
yeah its a laptop he bought from his work and then sold to me too bad it wont work, ill have to ask him to get in touch with the it department that sold it to him and get rid oif this safeboot thing thanks for the help!
