administrator password in recovery console

  malchik 15:37 17 Nov 2006

I needed to use recovery console on a client's PC. He assures me he set up no administrator password. so when prompted I simply hit [return] and got "password not recognized". I tried various standard passwords but no joy. Given that he isn't mistaken, does anyone know of any way out of this situation? Can you run recovery console on a machine with no administrator password at all? I do need to run recovery console. Keen to avoid a reinstall.
