Sounds like the crack used was supposed to block windows updates...but they got a little carried away....

Get the ball rolling with Amazon.
.......last ditch option..........
If it will not let you run the recovery disc's....( be sure you set the BIOS to boot from cd)....Back up best you can...Go to the Windows folder and delete everything you can....muck up the registry...ect....cripple recovery....

If that doesn't work try to borrow a Windows 7 home disk (any flavor) try to install...then run recovery.....

Can you bypass the Admin password box using Enter key or pressing Next?

You should be able to do this if there is not an Admin password

Exactly what happens if you try booting the Recovery Disk? Boot from CD - How to Boot your Computer from a Bootable CD or DVD - Boot to CD

Is this a set of Disks or just one? What do they say on them exactly?
