Can I copy a SAM file and a SYSTEM file of a laptop and just change my SAM file and SYSTEM file on my own PC? Will my PC then have the password of the laptop? Or is there another way I can copy the password from one computer to another, without knowing the password?
Well, didn't test yet, but I think it's not possible to do it that way.
There are two possible places to store user's password. SAM file and registry (
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESAM). Both are inaccessible if Windows is running.
Just to understand your question better, why do you want to have the same password in your own PC, if you dont know what it is?
Why don't you run Mimikatz or Pwdump in the laptop, check the cleartext password, and change your own password to the same?
