Hi billberry12,

Its great to hear that you were able to get the BIOS password reset on the system. We can get the password reset for our customer only once we verify the account details.

So in order to get the password reset for any laptop a user should be able to verify the system ownership with us.

Feel free to get in touch with us for any future queries.

Win7 setup Admin Password?
When isntalling Win 7 after a few screens it asks for a "Setup Password for Account" but I THINK thats just for the user account isnt it? XP install used to specify this was specifically an administrator password. Isnt that one on the Windows 7 install end-target user password? Thanks.

Admin Password during setup...
I kind of miss the XP OS setup where it makes you assign the admin password during setup. Am I missing the place to do that in a Win7 setup or is it just done after the install? Thx!
