    Boot disc to reset local passwords, ERD for Windows 7?

    Hi,

    For resetting passwords on anything older than Windows 7 i use ERD / Winternals. Its just a boot disc.

    Does anyone know of any i can use on Windows 7 ERD doesnt seem to work please?

    Also i would like something that has a system restore feature, I have used this in ERD with windows XP when the OS wont boot.

    Anyway if anyone knows anything please

    Thanks

    DaRT is part of the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack, I belive you should be able to get in though the Microsoft Volume Licensing site, i use it all the time to fix computers.

    According to “Enrolment for Education Solutions - Offering overview” you are entitled to it as part of your Professional Desktop Platform Suite for Software Assurance.

    You can also download a copy if you have a TechNet subscription (for evaluation use in a non-production environment only though).

    Make sure you are properly licensed to use it, since it isn't free.

    I use DaRT, latest version works on Win7/8/2012
    The boot image also works from a WDS server so you can PXE boot into it. Also have it on an SSD USB Zalman which is handy.
