I was installing a Windows 10 Pro PC. I had only one user, who by default is the administrator. I set the password and specified Computer Name and Workgroup, so I had to reboot. It seems that somehow I could not remember the password.
I have a CD with a program, which I have used several times to reset the Administrator password. The way it works is you boot from the CD which boots a Unix OS which allows you to reset the Windows Password.
It used to be, you restart the computer at the same time that you tap F12. This brings you into the Boot Menu. Not with Windows 10!
I get a black screen with:
Boot Menu is set to: UEFI: Secure Boot: ON
WINDOWS BOOT MANAGER
BIOS Flash Update
Change Boot Mode Settings
I selected Change Boot Mode Settings and got:
CHANGE BOOT MODE TO:
1) Legacy Boot Mode. Secure Boot OFF
2) UEFI Boot Mode. Secure Boot OFF
I have not dared go any further, having heard stories of the PC becoming "UN Bootable" etc...
QUESTION: HOW DOES ONE BOOT FROM THE CD IN A WINDOWS 10 COMPUTER
Help is appreciated.
