Hi.

I sometimes have a problem that I have to repair Computers. I normally take a USB stick or DVD with hirens boot cd or Backbox , boot from there and save all data. But sometimes the computers have a BIOS password and have not enabled USB boot or CD boot.
How would you get to run something on these machines without resetting the BIOS or disconnecting the existing HDD?

Sorry but if you have to repair the computer ask the psw to the owner.... Btw you can only mount the hd as external device, or reset the bios.

rotation / Maksuda Yasmin,
WTF! can you tell us the sense of all this?
You double posted the same question, are you jocking? Same subject, same words...
If people didn't answer to you once, i think the situation won't change the second time, neither "upping" the thread nor even opening a new one!
I think you should read something about netiquette.

P.S. In the second thread you forgot an "Hi" and a newline... please, the next time use in a better way the magical power of the copy/paste.

Bye.

Hi, first take off the hard drive and then insert the usb or cd-dvd disc so Ur machine automatic boots to usb or cd-dvd ,why because the machine boots from first devise which is hard drive but if not find it ,going to boot from second devise which is ur usb or cd-dvd so job done and then u need to put back the hard drive into the machine to do what u want or u can crack the bios pass with hiren and reset the settings then put back the hard drive into the machine.
