I had some problem during system boot. I read that this problem can be solved by registry replace using:

copy c:\windows\repair\system c:\windows\system32\config\system
copy c:\windows\repair\software c:\windows\system32\config\software
copy c:\windows\repair\sam c:\windows\system32\config\sam
copy c:\windows\repair\security c:\windows\system32\config\security
copy c:\windows\repair\default c:\windows\system32\config\default

Unfortunately system still won't boot properly. Now I can't access the recovery console, because administrator password is required (and it isn't empty). Is there any default admin password stored in registry from repair directory?
