windows xp recovery console password

I am trying to use the windows XP recovery console, But i am being asked for a an administrators password.

I am entering the only administrator password that i know of and it is not accepting it.

Is there a password that i am un aware of, or is windows making up a password that does not exist, its microsoft software so i would not be suprosed at all.

Any help please

I had the exact same problem at the weekend. I can't take the credit as Chegs supplied the solution for me - just enter though that part. Don't enter a password. Just choose the Windows installation you want (probably 1) then press enter.

Hope that works for you too.

so when it asks for a password just press enter?

is that what you mean?
