    Windows password reset

    franto25

      Hi,

      I have a corporate PC with windows 7 installed and McAfee Endpoint Encryption (safeboot).

      My problem is that I have lost my windows passwords. I still have the encryption password so I can decrypt the disk and enter windows logon, but then I'm stuck.

      Normally I would use a linux bootable drive to get to the Windows SAM file and reset my passwords, but this can't be done while the system is encrypted.

      I tried chainloading the safeboot MBR from an external linux drive, to see if I might be able to decrypt the disk before loading linux, but with no success.

      Is there any tool or solution to my problem?
