you tried this?
when you See Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys Twice and it’ll show Classic Login box. Now type “Administrator” (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank.(or put the password you used at install of windows) Now press Enter

How do you get this System Recovery Options dialog? I think I saw it earlier but now I can't find it.

When I choose my OS in the first System Recovery Options dialog and press Next, I get the following message:
"This version of System Recovery Options is not compatible with the version of Windows you are trying to repair. Try using a recovery disc that is compatible with this version of Windows."
I suspect a 32/64 issue. The installation disc allows both kinds, but it doesn't let you choose until you perform an actual installation, so it's very likely that the System Recovery Options are 32-bit-only.
I can still get the dialog with the five options by pressing Cancel at various stages, but then when I choose System Restore, I get the following message:
"To use System Restore, you must specify which Windows installation to restore. Restart this computer, select an operating system, and then select System Restore."
I'm just about to give up and re-install, unless I manage to get a 64-bit System Restore Options.
