Capturing screen before loggin in to desktop (Windows)

Hello. I just bought a new microfone and now I would like to record a video in which I explain certain programs and utilities. Now I don't know much about recording software, but I do know that I would be glad if I found something that captures as good as immediately when the login screen of Windows shows up. Help? And please provide me with all the details you can think of :)

Most of the capturing screen software is designed to be a "windows app" so it will start recording once you "login and open the program".
But, what you can use is to create a virtual machine in your computer (using HyperV or any other virtualization software), so you can start windows on your host computer, record the screen or portion screen where is showed the VM windows and from there you can even record the rebooting or anything you want in between.

Camtasia :, it can record up to HD@30fps  (1920x1080) (2k)
GForce Experience (If you have an NVidia video card,   it can record up to UHD@60fps (3840x2160) (4k)

Alternatively, you can replace magnify.exe with CMD.exe in safe mode. This way you can start magnify from the lock screen accessibilities menu then, in turn, start the screen recorder.

Running in a VM, as per above, is the easiest though
Record your screen with a camera until windows and the screen recorder start, then switch to the screen capture software. Just append the camera screen recording to the rest in the beginning.
