Somebody gave me a very old HP Omnibook 500 laptop with Windows XP Professional on it. It was a corporate PC from HP and it was given to me by a former executive of the company. But he doesn't remember the password. I want to wipe it and put Ubuntu on it. But I can't get past the password screen and I can't get the machine to boot from the USB Drive. I changed the boot order in the BIOS, but it just boots into windows anyway and I get stuck.
Has anybody else here had this problem and found a work-around?
