lost windows login, upgrading to vista>now stuck RRS feed

  • Question

  • This is a long ugly story.  I dont know what happent to my user id and password but when I got home, the usual one didnt work.  Tried everything.  used a password reset tool; didnt work.  I run windows xp media center, so a tech told me to just get vista full install.  At costco, they had no full installs, the helper guy said the upgrade would work,  I questiond him (explained the lost password etc) he said no problem, Id be give the option to re-format.  So I try to install,  It first wants to repair (xp I assume) but that wont work.  I try to restore,  that doesnt work either.  I try to go back to original factory settings (from boot menu) not an option. 

     

    Tired of trying to fix this !!! Help

  • Sorry to be unhelpful but this is the Windows Home Server forum. Im not sure what to suggest other than actually reinstalling your MCE software and then upgrading to Vista using the software you have just got.
