Any workaround for retaining changed users password under SteadyState? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • A simple scenario: In a school environment, I have a number of standalone WinXP computers with SteadyState installed, Disk Protection ON and very few restrictions applied to an existing user account with basic privileges (not admin nor power user) and an unlocked profile on own disk partition. I need to have that user be able to change own password at will. Now, the user is actually able to do so, under his/her ongoing logged on session. However, upon restart the password change is naturally not retained due to Disk Protection. 

    I don't want to elevate the users account priviliges, still want to have Disk Protection ON where changes to the system partition are not saved, but still would want him/her to be able to change own password and have it saved, without needed assistance from an admin. I understand that this sounds like an oxymoron and "can't be done", which is why i obviously ended up here, hoping someone could contribute with a miracle cure to this dilemma :)
