Have a problem with laptop running win 2000 pro. Locked out as someone has messed up passwords and I can't get into computer. Have a solution from this site which needs me to boot into dos but not sure how?

Resetting the BIOS to look for a floppy first then place a win98 boot disc into the flopppy and restart.

That will take you to the A prompt

You can download a boot floppy from click here - make sure you have a formatted floppy in the A drive (to download to)

Does W2K work from M$ DOS?

I've an idea, though not certain, that W2K, like XP, works from Calderra DOS. If so, I don't think a W9x boot disk will do anything useful.

I use win2k on two of my PC's and, whenever I need to format (all too often) I use a win98 boot disk to access DOS.

Only way I know how to get under win2k

Oh! I was only a thought, as I said:-)
