    Sorry to hijack your thread Teel but I have a quick question for Pookie. The company I work for also uses DaRT (from a multiboot USB stick) except ours seems to only repair the OS it's based on ( DaRT 7.0 working for 7, DaRT 8.1 working for 8.1). Does yours do the same? I'm guessing you've combined them since you have 2.6GB.

    Im pretty sure the last time i used it the latest version worked fine on Win7 (never tried on vista or XP). So i'm guessing by the size they must be combined. I only use DART now and again so It's not like I can always remember.

    If however I'm wrong then I'll bung over the previous version. On that note how is the upload I did working out Tel? Did it burn ok?

    Am I too late to jump on the bandwagon and ask for the link myself? I do it so much for mates/friends etc using the old Ubuntu/magnifier.exe swap trick this would be so much easier.

    Pretty please pookie?

    I wish I was allowed to post our internal boot USB image. It has every tool imaginable from dart to Kali, parted magic to F4UBCD. But I aren't :( even though I put it all together.

    Thank you kind sir. Added to my arsenal.

    An elaboration for anyone else because this method comes in handy not just for password resets.
    1. Use LiveCD to access windows files.
    2. Rename the magnifier, on screen keyboard, sticky keys or some other utility accessible from the login menu.
    3. Rename CMD.exe to the original name of the utility you just renamed e.g. sticky keys is sethc.exe (you may have to select a different version of cmd depending on x32/x64 system)
    4. Restart
    5. At the logon screen activate the utility you replaced with CMD to launch CMD with admin/elevated permissions.
    6. Type in "net user administrator /active:yes" or whatever else command you need to run from CMD
    7. Restart
    8. Admin account should be visible now for you to log in freely and work.
