    When you have burned the cd, start up the sick machine.

    Watch for writing on the screen - it say something like DEL for SETUP, F11 ( or some other key ) for boot menu or boot selection, or similar.

    Press whatever it tells you for boot menu or boot selection.

    When the menu appears, arrow down to cdrom drive -or dvd drive - whatever your machine calls it.

    open the tray , put the cd in , close the tray , give it a few seconds to notice a cd is in there.

    then press enter.


    You will get a message , Press any key to boot from cdrom drive.

    Just press enter.

    It is the windows version of this Linux utility Offline Windows Password & Registry Editor - Windows version is a lot easier to use.


    Use the start menu to find your windows drive letter - it may be different from here - that is normal.

    In the screenie, my windows7 is on D

    Click image for larger version

    Click image for larger version

    So I change letter C to D

    Click (Re) open, select my user account ( 7 is the user name), I left it blank - therefore no password at all.

    I tried to download this program onto the only computer that I had available to me at the time which was at the library. It did what I thought was the download but it turned out not to be.

    Anyway I didnt have this question then cause I thought it had already downloaded. I didnt get the chance to ask this question. Im going to try to do this anyway without the answer that I will get as a responce from this question.

    When I click on the Download Folder icon on the far right of this program page where does this program go? I had to become a member of Windows Live (at least thats what it tells me in order to download) I dont know where this goes in order to burn it to the cd. I have just downloaded it and we will see what happens but..... I went to this Windows Live and it gives me a free account but it appears to be empty. I will try again but apparently this download process is not that easy of a download that I am accustomed to.

    OK I got this dowloaded to the desktop of my sisters computer. I just named it New download. So I Downloaded it to a CD as New Download. I click on that and I get Name: NEW ~ Type: ISO Image File ~ Compressed Size: 283,369 KB ~ Ratio: 4%

    I assume this is what I was supposed to do. I hope that I was not supposed to extract ~ which Im not sure how to do or if it is other than ask it to do so.

    Since I am as my sisters and she lives 30 min. away I am making a copy of the instructions and going for it.

    First you extract the .zip file to get the .iso

    Don't extract the contents from the .iso once you have it - keep it as an .iso , then burn New.iso to cd.

    (Don't burn the .zip to cd , it won't work.)

    I hope im not in trouble cause I did not use this thia Power program but the iso file is on the cd so I hope that is right.

    Im sorry that Im such a pain in the ass guys. I am stupid but not stupid if that makes any sense. Well... it makes perfect sense to me.

    I am going to print off all the other instructions that are here and go home and see what happens.

    I'll be back one way or the other.

    Thanks ever so much.

    You don't need to use Poweriso - there are many programs will which burn an iso as an image to cd.

    If it boots, you did it right.

    If it doesn't boot, you probabaly burned it to cd as a data file, not as an image.

    Thanks for answering me so fast wow I didnt expect that. I didnt even get a chance to get outa the chair. When I first put the CD in it asks me what do I want to open it with ~ a usb or a DVD/CD is that normal?

    The entire file you downloaded does not go on a cd.

    It is .zip file.

    Extract the .zip file first to get a file called New.iso.

    You then burn New.iso to cd.

    I can't tell from your description what you have done so far.

    Try and boot it on your sister's pc - or any pc - doesn't matter - we are just seeing if it will boot.

    Booting a cd /dvd is not the same as playing a cd/dvd.

    This is how to boot from a cd/dvd:


    Start up the pc

    Watch for writing on the screen- ( this will come up straight away, before windows starts ) - it will say something like DEL for SETUP, F11 ( or some other key ) for boot menu or boot selection, or similar.

    Press whatever it tells you for boot menu or boot selection.

    When the menu appears, arrow down to cdrom drive or dvd drive, whatever your machine calls it.

    open the tray , put the cd in , close the tray , give it a few seconds to notice a cd is in there.

    then press enter.


    You will get a message , "Press any key to boot from cdrom drive"

    Just press enter.
