Vista SAM ?

2 posts in this topic

Main Question:why are Vista's hashes not loading? how to export them with Ophcrack LiveCD?

well im trying to fix my Girlfriends fathers PC, he bought it like i'd say 8 months ago. since then he messed with some passwords and now cant get into his main account. I suggested booting the factory settings but he doesn't want too (im assuming to keep his work files)

so i decided to try ophcrack LiveCD, no luck. shortly after some more research i realized vista stores their hashes in LMNT.

anyways, i tried grabbing the SAM hash from the computer with saminside, no luck said something about not having proper admin right/file in use...ect..

so im able to see the account names using OPHcrack Live CD. i guess what im asking is. is it possible to:

1 - load the SAM using Ophcrack LiveCD 1st.. but:

2 - how do i export it to another place so that i can the hash up to

The step im seeking is, how to export the hash string while in the OphCrack LiveCD Enviourment, so i can add it to Cain BruteForce?

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.

If the problem is only that he needs to get into the system again, you may have better luck just replacing the hash with a new one with something like this boot disk:

I've not tried it on Vista yet, but would be interested in hearing if you have had any success with it.
