I lost/forgot my admin password on my HP laptop (no I stupidly never created the backup disk...) I created a Ophcrack Live CD, and tried to boot. However, it comes up with the following error:
ISOLINUX 4.05 2011-12-09 ETCD Copyright (c) 1994-2011 H. Peter Anvin Et al EDD: Error 0100 reading Sector 258330 No DEFAULT or UI configuration directive found! boot:

I've changed the BIOS settings to make sure everything is set to boot from the CD, and i've created the new IOS of Ophcrack several times to make sure it was copied correctly... I simply don't know where to go from here.... and I really, really don't want to delete and replace the entire Win 7 program.

someone please help!!!
