Hi all,

I've got a funny question. During the install process (repair WinXP), I choose to repair (r) my current win install, and I choose what partition I wanna use for win, then the installprogram ask fo my admin password, and I don't use/have a admin or other pass, I'm the only user of that computer? What pass does it want.

ps. The problem is solved, I just wonder about that pass :)

Usually if it asks for a password and you don't recall setting one up, just it the 'ok' button - since nothing is the password.

You are well aware that it's in the dos-like prompt that it askes for the pass? But next - if there will be a nexttimer - I'll try it :)

It depends on the operating system you are running. WinXP Home Edition -- no administrative password. WinXP Professional -- a password is requested for the administrative account during setup, or for the main user that will be given administrative privileges.
