 – Bootable CD image – CD Image(click to download)can also be burned onto a USB drive or key

How to make the CD

Unzip the file and there will be an ISO image file (cd070409iso). This can be burned to CD using whichever CD Burning program you like, Nero is my recommendation.

The CD will boot with most BIOSes, see your manual on how to set it to boot from CD.

Boot from the CD.
You will see the following screen begin to load;  Hit Enter when you see boot:

Figure 1 

You will then need to select the partition on your hard drive where Windows is installed.  In this example it is simple since there is only 1 partition.  Type the number of the partition – in this case 1  and hit Enter.

Figure 2

You will then be prompted for the PATH and registry files.  In most cases the default value is fine.  Just Hit Enter.

Figure 3

You will then be brought to a menu to reset the password.  The option is 1.  Type the number 1 and hit Enter.

Figure 4 

The next step is to select the option to Edit User Data and Passwords.  Type the number 1 and hit Enter.  The local user accounts will be displayed on screen.

Figure 5

Type in the name of the local account for which you want to reset the password, then hit Enter.

Figure 6

Type in the new password for the account and hit Enter.

Figure 7

When you are prompted if you really want to change the password, type Y for yes and hit Enter.

Figure 8

At the next screen type ! (exclamation mark) and hit Enter to quit.

Figure 9

You will be prompted to write the files to the hard drive so that the changes will take effect.  Type Y for yes and hit Enter.
This will then take you back to the main menu.  Type q for quit and hit Enter.

Figure 10

New pc, forgot password, asks for password disc, don't have one, pc hasn't even run yet, how do I fix it,?


you have learned a valuable lesson. New pcs tell you it is recommended to make a password reset disk. most people skip this, only to find later they need it. Being as the PC is new, my suggestion is to either return it and tell them what happened. They should be able to put it back to like it was when you got it, and then you can make a password reset disk while you are setting it up.
