Remove Password from Recovery Console – Windows XP/2000


Recover Console – Windows XP


Recovery Console – Windows 2000

Some times we get some errors that wont allow us to get inside windows where ‘Recovery Console’ comes into picture, we normally try to boot the sys with the help of windows boot disc and then we select the option ‘R’ to get inside Recovery Console but still there we have type the admin password to use the console. where in 70% – 75% of users does not have a admin password for their sys. so all they have to do is just hit enter to get inside the recovery console, but the remaining users should enter a password and in this many forget the admin password and they will not be able to use the console. so here we are having a tweak for such users if u really forget the admin password then do this while your sys works fine coz we can’t predict when it will go bad.


Step 1 : click Start and click RUN

Step 2 : Type REGEDIT and click OK.

Step 3 : follow this path – HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Setup\RecoveryConsole

Step 4 : double click the keyword ‘SecurityLevel’

Step 5 : Change the Value Data to be 0 or 1 (0 = require password, 1 = no password)
