A co-worker is in the NE & SE quadrants of Calgary on business, and is
having problems with his laptop operating system(unable to login to
XP). I'm trying to help him restore his laptop to a usable state as
quickly as possible.
One option would be to reset/create/crack a local password account so
he could login as a local user. The laptop has XP Pro installed.
I suggested he would be able boot off a live CD so that he might be
able to work around the OS problems until he returns to the home
office on Monday. Can anyone suggest a shop or a consultant that
would burn Knoppix or another bootable distro & show him how to boot
We'd happily pay to get his laptop(including the wireless network
connection) functioning in the meantime. Installing Ubuntu would be
an option as long as the previous OS was intact(dual boot) - he still
needs to access the personal data saved on the laptop's hard drive
when he gets back to his normal OS next week.
Any suggestions of shops or contacts would be appreciated. Feel free
to contact me off list as well.
