This is another trick that will easily work in Windows NT 4.0 and some versions of Windows 2000. The principal is that you need to install a second instance of your OS to your HD, then manipulate the default screen saver (the one that's used if you don't move your mouse while the CTRL-ALT-DEL box appears) for the original OS.
This tip will NOT work for Windows Server 2003. This is because of changes in the service
account with which the process runs. In Windows 2000 it was run in the Local SYSTEM
account (LSA) privileges, while in Windows Server 2003 it is run with the LOCAL SERVICE
account, thus resulting in far less privileges than it used to have in W2K and NT 4.0. The
reason 2 new account have been introduced in 2003 is that SYSTEM Account has way too
many power over the system and the system could be compromised by exploiting almost
any system service. The Microsoft's solution was to introduce 2 less powerful accounts
(LOCAL SERVICE and NETWORK SERVICE) and make some services run in the context
of those accounts instead of LSA.
NT, not Windows 2000, as doing so will ruin your old NT
installation (because of the difference between the NTFS
versions). Same goes for W2K, XP and Windows Server 2003.
I wanted to mention that this can also be accomplished by removing the hard drive, placing it as a slave on another computer (XP and W2K play nicely) and then accessing the file system. Of course you need a second computer, but for some folks it may be an easier solution.
That's correct, and it will work for you unless you converted the disk to a dynamic disk, on the original OS. In that case you will no longer be able to boot the old OS, even if you do manage to access the files from the other computer.
execute the file, not delete it. If that is the case (and it is in W2K, XP and Windows Server 2003) then you need to take ownership of the file and give the EVERYONE group FULL CONTROL
