I was trying to fix a laptop for a friend (XP professional), I lost all patience with it and used a windows disk repair function (basically takes registry back to default values and a few other things) but it seems to have FUBARed it.

I think fixing the MBR would help but.. I don't know the administrator password so can't enter the repair console. If I put the drive in another computer can I fix the MBR then without having to know the administrator password? (obviously I'll know the password for the other computer but I wouldn't need the repair console then)
