Or maybe try attaching the boot drive to an x86 system and try using
the usual Windows NT password reset tools? (e.g. chntpw Live CD) I
have no idea if all of the file systems and data file formats are
identical enough between x86 and Alpha versions of Windows NT.
Would probably be a good idea to make a backup image of the boot drive
before using any tools to modify its contents.
