The Bios is before you ever get to the CD. Also, if your Bios allows for HDD locks or boot locks then that is even further. If you can't boot without the password, how far do you think you will get?
Nice try Tyler...
I never said it can change the BIOS password I said it can bypass the BIOS password and then change the windows password. I'm not trying anything Astumi is a bootable CD that can bypass a BIOS protected computer and change the administrative password. Try to google it.
Edit: I made a huge mistake guys I'm sorry I have the name wrong let me check through my pile of CDs for the correct name...
Edit#2: Actually it's called Austrumi
Austrumi (v0.9.2 - December 2004)
Austrumi is a Linux bootable ISO image for recovering NT passwords and other cool tools and methods, sized for Business Card size CD media (50Mb). It allows you to change any password, including that of the Administrator, on a partition occupied by Windows NT, Windows 2000 or Windows XP. Simply boot the CD and when you get to the initial boot prompt, type:
This will launch a console utility that will detect Windows partitions on the hard disk and provide you with a menu to modify any user or Administrator passwords on the Windows system. It will even give access to the Windows registry for recovery purposes. Quite a handy utility to keep in your wallet (AUSTRUMI is small enough to fit on a business card-size CD) if you are unfortunate enough to having to deal with Windows machines in your line of work.
