RnR unknown password

2010-07-22, 17:43 PM

I have a ThinkCentre A50 and am attempting to restore it to factory settings. However, upon running either the RnR cds, or directly from the HD partition, I am prompted  to enter a password. I don't know of a password to enter and furthermore there is no hint that could possibly help guess the password. Any thoughts on how I could work around the password issue?

wilso010, welcome to the forum,


have you tried entering your windows admin account password?  Did you purchase the system from a third party as a used system? Maybe they know the password?
