Yes something similar to that using on screen key board.
However, I couldn't see or copy/replace the contents of my PCs drive
when typed "C:" at the prompt, it said "the drive is not ready"

That tutorial (and others) should mention that the drive letter often times changes.

See step 4 in this tut.

Try using D in place of C.

I have always had success removing passwords with the two software's listed below:

1. Windows Password Unlocker
2. Hiren's Boot CD

Do some research online on how to use and where to get the software's from.

Hope this helps

The one GokAy showed has always worked for me: User Account Password - Change from WinRE

I've used it many times.

The shortcut has an extra character at the end breaking it.
