I am getting a blue screen error UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME
After some research, I see that a fix for this is Windows Recovery Console, but when I attempt to do that, the admin password is invallid, no matter that it is the correct password.  I see that it is bypassable butt I can't  get onto windows to access the registry in order to bypass it.  
Any thoughts how to fix this problem?
