Question Windows 10 will not accept my password after upgrade


Dec 24, 2005
Dear folk

Today I updated my laptop core i5 with windows 10 pro 64 bit and I ended up windows complaining about the password is wrong and defiantly it is the right password

I tried the link below

But I failed to make it work then I used Hiren USB to reset password but I ended up with those screens

partition C is locked ?

NTPWEdit showing no user to reset password ?

This forum can not provide any assistance regarding password recovery. I can tell you what you are trying will not work.

What did you upgrade from? Is the Windows copy you had a "legal" copy and is the update from Microsoft? If not, we can't help you.

A sure fix is to go to another machine and run the MS media creation tool:
Boot from the media you create and do a "Clean" install. This will wipe everything off your hard drive (all your data and programs) but will return you access to Windows assuming you have a license.

Let me know how things go.
