oh yeah, oph crack :) alright, i'll dl some rainbow tables on the usb... or do I have to put both on the USB? I haven't played with my BIOS in 1-2 years. I have ophcrack on a disk lol, but it didn't crack and I was sad the last time I tried :p
:) well, I've never really have had gear to mod. As for the computer, it's back from 7th-8th grade when my dad bought a pre-built one lol. If I could build one, I'd probably do the next gen intel + next gen nvidia single gpu flag w/ ssd and hdd.
Yeah, just go with this to save yourself the hassle http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=ophcrack, or backtrack if you want a complete toolset for future stuff.
Haven't had a new custom rig of my own in 7-8 years, having spilt something on that one....so I did the exact same thing last month. i3-3220, Crucial M4. It's good to escape from my usual haven of '92-'00 hardware (Thinkpads, Lifebooks)
