Reset Local User passwords in Windows 7

I forgot my own password for the Boot Camp partition on my MacBook Pro, I'd been letting it sit unused so long it just never had a chance to gel with me.

Well, it turns out the trusty "Offline NT Password & Registry Editor" is still fully functional with Windows 7, so I downloaded the appropriate ISO, burned it to a CDR, and minutes later I had access to the system

Holding down alt/option to select the boot disk at startup allowed me to choose the CDR I had burned, though it did not detect my keyboard, plugging in an external made everything work smoothly from that point forward.

A handy tool in a pinch when you're locked out of your own OS.
