Dear Mr.Jlinkels
Perhaps I know what you are thinking but I want to assure you that I am neither a hacker nor a thread to any security system. I am just a learner and want to expand my knowledge.I don't think there is anything wrong with it.

And thanks to all the posters because my problem is solved.

Now, almost a year later, he is asking how to crack open a box which is so severely secured that safe boot is disabled, and there is no way of external booting, and he forgot the root password. Yeah right, you disable every emergency entry and then you forget the root password.

I would recommend that we (myself not excluded) show a more prudent distrust in sparse posters with unlikely security breach questions.

Good catch...I had not noticed that other thread, but this does now have an odor to it.

No, not at all...but how do we KNOW that you're not trying to break a system? You didn't follow up in your other thread, and haven't really provided any details in this thread, as to how you got where you are, and why the 'traditional' methods won't work for you.

Great...how about telling us how it was solved? What did you do? And why/how did you get into this situation to start with?
