    Default chntpw not working for me

    when I type #chntpw -i /dev/sda2/Windows/System32/config/SAM the output is

    chntpw version 0.99.5 070923 (decade), (c) Petter N Hagen
    openHive(/dev/sda2/Windows/System32/config/SAM) failed: Not a directory, trying read-only
    openHive(/dev/sda2/Windows/System32/config/SAM) in fallback RO-mode failed: Not a directory
    closing hive /dev/sda2/Windows/System32/config/SAM
    Unable to open/read a hive, exiting..

    but when I type #chntpw -i /dev/sda2 the output is

    chntpw version 0.99.5 070923 (decade), (c) Petter N Hagen
    openHive(/dev/sda2): File does not seem to be a registry hive!


    <>========<> chntpw Main Interactive Menu <>========<>

    Loaded hives: </dev/sda2>

    1 - Edit user data and passwords
    2 - Syskey status & change
    3 - RecoveryConsole settings
    - - -
    9 - Registry editor, now with full write support!
    q - Quit (you will be asked if there is something to save)


    What to do? [1] ->

    can somebody tell me what am I doing wrong .
