Lenovo thinkpad (not sure which model) which he got from work. He hasn’t worked for that company in years, and they probably don’t want the computer back. It boots to a windows 7 professional login page, but his password does not work anymore to log in. I guess they locked him out?
I am his tech guy. Two questions is there any way to get the personal data off the computer? What would happen if I boot Ubuntu off a live USB?
I didn’t find the right solution from the Internet.
