Default Re: Windows Recovery Console Password

Happened to me years ago when my sister PC crashed and cannot booted. Went to Recovery Console then it asked for admin password, completed forgetten the password after years and had tried enter as many passwords I can think of but it wont let me in, blank password didnt worked either. After that I browsed internet for Windows administrator password reset tool and downloaded Offline NT Password Disk and created bootable DVD then booted, located and successful changed reseted administrator password. Rebooted PC and I managed to login Recovery Console with new administrator password.
