Also state for what user the password is prompted and what installation disk you used to make your nLite disk.

Wrong file that's  Last Session_u.ini. Also you need to attach & not copy/paste last session.ini. ;)

This tweak that you choosed to activate may be the cause (I don't speak italian) "Avvio & Arresto-Ctrl-Alt-Canc all'avvio-Abilita"

so what happens if you just put "administrator" and no password ?

Also what do you mean by "access to your old XP" ? Is it an install you done or a repair ? Or an install without format and you're talking about your documents ?

Translates to "Start & Stop-Ctrl-Alt-Canc (Del?) Enable startup"

Don't know what that means... :}

When I put "administrator" and no password is the same thing, and I did a repair.

So what if you try with your

 

state for what user the password is prompted

Now we know that it was a repair install, the answer to this question would have been welcome. Have you tried with your former user account and no password?

any user account is always the same thing; if I don't write the password the system doesn't start. But before the reinstallation I had no password.

What do you mean by that ? What "password" do you "write" ? What happens then, as opposite to "doesn't start" ? Please be more precise about what really happens.

 

So for a 3rd time,..

state for what user the password is prompted

or are you prompted for a Username as well (was the username box empty at first?) or do you have a "Welcome Screen" with users too choose from ?

And what was the reason to reinstall at first ?

I will try to explain something to you here:

 

A "reinstall" of XP the way you tried to do it will not work...

 

A "reinstall" attempts to reconfigure XP as the way it was configured NOT the way of the new disk that was setup.

 

It is going to be likely that you will not be able to get into your "Old XP" as alot of the files and registry that was expected simply was not there for the setup to use. Thus rendering your installation flawed.

 

Once a os has been nLited (Beyond simply adding a service pack) a reinstall or repair install is highly likely to simply fail.

 

The only chance you have is to put in a old user name (From before the reinstall) as they might stll be there.

 

Also this whole section here having NO entries will cause some issues to has you will have conflicting holes.

... "someone" asked him to edit the file before posting it. :rolleyes:

 

@ gius52, is that "gr" on the 3rd screenshot the name of an account from your former XP ? If not, can you list the folders in "C:\Documents and Settings"?

I only asked for him to remove the serial.

 

I hope he edited it all and didn't somehow end up with a nearly blank answer file from nLite....

Can you log with "ross" and no password (or any that it had)? Or maybe the name of the italian admin is "administratore"? :(

Yes, I tried, but it is always the same thing.

I think that probably I'll delete Windows folder and reinstall it. What do you think of that?

I don't have much experience with Repair installs. Did you really  choose "Repair" from the Textmode setup part or did you just install over the former XP, without format ? I see you choosen "Unattended", maybe the computer name got changed and that would render former logins unavailable ? I don't know. Personnaly, I'd try one of those Linux CD that allow you to clear passwords... but It's on the edge of what can be discussed here and I won't tell more about that.

Google --- How To Remove Your Windows XP Password --- for an article by Tim Fisher, probably the first result.
 
In your case you will need to look down at the bottom in the Tips section for the case where "... you want to remove your Windows XP password because you've forgotten it and can no longer access Windows XP ..."

I personally haven't had to try it, but it looks like that might help you.

Cheers and Regards

I had seriously mis-read/mis-understood the issue. :w00t:  :blushing:

 

If the problem is "cannot login to Windows XP", possibly one of the simpler approaches is logging in without password (and then create a new "normal" account), and hopefully a simple way is to use a USB stick with PassPass (yeah, it's a "plug"" ;)):

In the last days I tried those programs and other similar programs, but none of them could solve the problem.

However I thank everyone answered to my question and hope someone can have other good ideas and tell me it. Perhaps the best thing is to erase the Windows folder and reinstall it and all the programs...sigh!
