      @Anthony: I have seen that problem. Use the Down arrow key or Enter (I don't remember for sure) and at end you will see the options…

    Awesome, by the far the simplest and most effective way to enable or reset an administrator password for Windows. This saved me having to re-image a computer that had somehow got the local admin account disabled.
    Thank You!

    Thank you. This has helped me a few times with Windows 8 & 8.1. I was able to reset a local admin password, add a non admin account to the local admin group and enable the local admin account after sysprep disabled it.

    lakonst, I am using it on windows 8 and I can not get past step 1 either. It does not list any partitions, I can press 1 thru 9 and it just goes back to the command prompt.

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    Will this work if mounted on a flash drive as well? Or does it have to be burnt to a CD.

    When running, do not forget "unlock and enable user acount" (Step 7, [4])

    This does not appear to work in Win7 64-bit. It sees the partition but can't access it. Can't get past step 1. Pressing 1 (or 2, or 3, or 4) just reloads the prompt. Pressing L to show probable Windows partitions finds the Windows partition successfully, lists it as 1, but I can't get any further.

      William, this procedure works excellent in Win7 64bit. Unfortunately i can't imagine what your problem is. (p.s. you select the right disk/partition?)

    Hey,thank you for your solution for how to reset windows password while you have not entered it.
    I have ever met similar problem and the tool ever helped me to solve it is Windows Password Unlocker.

    This does not work for my win 8. After blanking out my password, the system still says the password is incorrect. I think the problem is because I am using a Microsoft account. Luckily I got another Live CD – PCUnlocker. It helped me reset my password successfully.
