I am having a hard time recovering an old forgotten win2k Pro dell laptop pwd. I ran the live cd, created the ISO img, and set a dell inspiron 5000e bios to see cdROM 1st (top of que). The disk is a cd. Yet, the bootup continues to ignore the cd boot drive (although it flashes to acknowledge 1st), and always goes to hard drive prompting password. Also tried Peter Nordhal's approach. Same problem. Anyone with experience have any idea what's wrong? thanks.
