System Restore
« on: April 11, 2008, 11:29:01 AM »

hi all

i've got a situation where i have lost all navigation within windows MCE, USB/PS2 keyboards and mice dont work even in safe mode but the keyboards do work in the bios/startup, so i cant run system restore.

even tried terminal services on my mobile over bluetooth .... syncs ok but cant log in coz the MCE doesnt have a password set!!!

I cant find a decent boot cd which has system restore on it for download and i havent backed up for over a week so i cant reinstall and dont want to do a 'windows repair'

any ideas????

Have a look here: http://www.petri.co.il/forgot_administrator_password.htm - scroll down about 2/3 of the page for the EBCD (Emergency Boot CD) and see if that will be of any use... funnily enough I stumbled on that about half an hour ago when following a link from a thread at another place.
