  1. Thanks kindly for the instructions to recover/reset the admin password. I read many web entries for hours trying to find help. Except you, all other articles said that the only solution was to start a new instance from scratch. Thanks again

  2. This was a big help and worked perfectly. I was able to mount my 2008 R2 boot volume as a second drive on another 2008 R2 instance, edit the file and then re-attach it to the original instance with no trouble booting it. Don’t know if I got lucky, or if it’s just because of the simple setup on my locked-out instance. I only have that single root volume.
