Trying to run XP Home command console to restore MBR. Can't get past password. HELP!
My MBR is bad. I tried booting into XP command console using a XP install disk. Command console loads and asks me for a password. Since XP was loaded by Dell at the factory, I have no clue what the password is. Various sites say hit <enter> or <return>. Some sites say the XP home has no password. Command Console rejects these responses. I don't want to shell out the money to buy XP and do a reinstall. I can't load XP to go in and reset the unknown password. I have a Dell Dimension 3000 built in 2005. I can't be the only one who has experienced this problem
