Password invalid after computer name change
Posted on 2013-11-30
I just changed the computer name of an old pc from work with Windows 7 to use it in my home network as a webserver. The problem is that I forgot that I don't have any local administrator password for this (yes, I was warned, but I thought I had one). I was an administrator on the old domain/user, but not a local administrator.
So now it seems I have no way of logging in! Do I really have to reinstall Windows 7 from scratch to be able to access the PC?
Thanks for any tips!
