now HOW ll i logon to my D:\WINDOWS ? when i issue " logon " command , it again showed me with the choice of either logon to catch22 or windows .
i selected windows , and it again asked me for the password .
so what is the method of using catch22 ? (i have read the 911 topic bt could not find the way to use catch22) .
Well, it is not a way to bypass the Administrator password of the installed Windows.
You need to change a key in the installed Windows Registry:
setting it to 1 in order to bypass the request for password.
Try re-reading the original post:
And this page:
Basically on a DEFAULT install of Windows XP, these settings for Recovery Console are set:
AllowWildCards = FALSE <-this means that you CANNOT use wildcards in commands like "dir" and "del".
AllowAllPaths = FALSE <-this denies access to some files and folders on the main system
AllowRemovableMedia = FALSE <-this means that you cannot copy to removable devices (read floppies)
NoCopyPrompt = FALSE<-this means that you cannot copy a file without being prompted to continue when you are overwriting an existing file.
In other words, try NOT running the batch setallon command, and play a bit in RC, navigating through the various filesystems, you should be denied access to most "system" directories.
Then try again after having run batch setallon.
About your map and map arc report, it is strange.
I'll try again:
And which drive letter has the RC you are booted in?
In Qemu, one single hard disk, the ramdisk image gets letter C:\ (and is NOT listed by the map or map arc commands) and the partition on the drive gets D:\
With two disks , the ramdisk image gets letter C:\ (and is NOT listed by the map or map arc commands) and the partitions on the drives get D:\ and E:\
