Steven recently asked me about the password for the VHD Testdrive program, he wrote:

"I found your details on the Microsoft MVP site. I hope you can help in this instance.


I have installed Virtual Server 2005 R2 and downloaded the VHD for Windows 2003 Server R2 and created a virtual machine using this VHD. How do I login into the Windows 2003 Virtual server as I do not know the Administrator password?"

Before I even went to look Dugie had posted the answer.

That's too much of a coincidence, so I assume someone (maybe Steven) asked Dugie the same thing, is there a problem with the documentation I wonder?


  • The password is correctly provided in readme file come with the VHD.

    You can ask Steven to refer to the readme file for the password.
