I am trying to reset the password on my bro's laptop.. Win 8.1 64-bit. I've tried a ton of different tools. Hirens doesn't see the drive at all. NT Offline Password tool sees the drive but doesn't find a "Candidate partition" for me to work on (I guess cause it's GPT/EFI). I've tried Medicat, Falcon Four, Trinity, etc. with various issues including:
1. net user not working.. throwing errors
2. password tools that see the drive but don't see any accounts to reset
3. Even tried the old Utilman.exe and cmd.exe switcharoo. I was able to rename CMD to Utilman, but when I booted back to the OS, clicking Ease of Access STILL opens Ease of Access.
I'm at my wits end with this. PLEASE, folks. Please help! lol
