Yes, you can use the OphCrack Linux distro to find the passwords stored in the SAM file on a Windows installation. You can download the version of the ISO according to the Windows installation then you can use UNetbootin to "burn" the ISO file to the USB drive. Make sure to select the option where you have to specify the ISO source. Wait for the process to finish, then boot using the USB and follow the instructions.
