Re: starting parted magic from UBCD seems to hang

Yes I am not sure if it is sufficient but whenever I get rid of a hard drive I run it through DBAN first. Take care bud.

Re: starting parted magic from UBCD seems to hang

Piney, Thanks so much for your help. Luckily enough I did have a 32 and 64 bit Windows 7 recovery cd. I followed the instructions on the Livewire link and it worked. As someone who helps people with their computers I am happy there are hacker tools like this but as a personal user it certainly scare...

Re: starting parted magic from UBCD seems to hang

hi Piney,

I still haven't had any luck with UBCD or ophcrack. I downloaded a copy f Windows Password Key. The demo ran and says it is compatible with the machine I am trying to recover, but you have to buy it for it to actually do anything. Are you familiar with it and have you ever tried it?

Re: starting parted magic from UBCD seems to hang

Looking at UBCD again it definitely looks like it sees the drive, because one of them I click on has an AVG folder as well as a windows folder.

Re: starting parted magic from UBCD seems to hang

So I also had tried a ophcrack cd before but it would also hang. Then last night all of a sudden I thought it might be for XP as I created it some time ago. I created a new bootable cd for W7 and sure enough this time it worked. Unfortunately it shows 'not found' for password for any of the three ID...

Re: starting parted magic from UBCD seems to hang

Sorry for the delay. I thought my question wasn't going to get posted because I checked back 2 or 3 days later and I wasn't sure how long it takes to get approved.

starting parted magic from UBCD seems to hang

I am trying to start the above on an HP laptop I have. It gets so far where it displays 4 messages about disabling IRQ's and then never seems to get any further. I have used this CD on a different laptop and it worked fine.
