    I know this issue has been addressed before by JB at
    http://www.jimmah.com/vista/Administration/locked_out_of_admin.aspx
    What makes my situation unusual is that my dell laptop was shipped with
    vista enterprise, but the operating system cd that was shipped was vista home
    basic. The reason for this is that I purchased through my daughter's
    college. I'm still trying to figure out if the college loaded the enterprise
    or if dell did. In the meantime, I cannot log on to any of the user
    accounts. My question: Can I boot from the vista basic cd and repair this,
    or do I need to have the vista enterprise cd?

    You can use any version Vista DVD.It without any meaning what version
    is installed system and what version is Vista DVD.The only meaning is
    architecture -you can't use x32 Vista DVD to repair x64 Vista,or x64
    Vista DVD to repair x32 Vista

    Flavius,
    Thanks for the response. I see that my vista basic cd is 32 bit, but am not
    sure how to tell about the vista enterprise service pack 1 that came pre
    installed on the laptop. Can I just try to see what happens when I try the
    fix (option 3) that jimmah outlines on his site?
