    I have dual boot OS to Vista Ultimate and XP Pro. Vista has password on
    bootup; XP does not. Vista usage is 98% of the time. Vista also has Windows
    Home Server installed on an HP EX475. Driver or software malfunction in Vista
    so booted in safe mode to system restore to earlier date. Rebooted and Vista
    will no longer accept password. I can still load XP OS which is where I am
    typing this message from. The Vista and XP are OEM versions from the computer
    manufacturer Xi Computer.com.
    Everything is backed up to the Home Server. The Home Server software is not
    installed in XP.
    1. Is there a way to remove the password from Vista or regain access?
    2. Did I unknowingly commit a sin?
    3. Is this preventable in the future?

    Hi jmdr

    I do not know how this will work with a dual boot system, but METHO
    THREE is good at resetting the password

    I know if you want to reset a log in password for vista you can buy this
    program.

    If you are using bitlocker this might not work! Because you need the correct
    password decrypt your files.
