Working on a PC that I lost the admin account. I've tried everything, but there is no way to logon as admin.

 

Decided to install fresh Windows 10. Downloaded image file from microsoft official site. Burned iso to disk using ImgBurn software, and verified integrity. Now I've put disk (dvd-wr) into computer and tried twice. It is not starting from disk.

 

Could this be because the computer has windows 10 and I'm not working with a administrator account?

 

Any other ideas?

 

Thanks

Have you gone into UEFI and changed the boot order?   You don't mention that, and the optical drive is very seldom in the boot order before the internal HDD/SSD by default.

 

You don't mention having done this.

Yes, that's right.

 

I went in and was not able to make changes. Instruction were to use + and - keys, but they were not responsive. Neither was anything else. Note that in the second group, HDD and CD-ROM are reversed from the top group.

 

1st boot device-----------HDD Group

2nd boot device----------CD-ROM Group

3rd Group------------------Floppy

4th Group------------------Network boot group

 

 

>CD-ROM Group boot priority------------------LP DVD-RAM....

>HDD Group boot priority------------------------HDS 721.........

>Floppy Group boot priority---------------------Not installed

>Network Group boot priority-------------------Realtek pxe b04 d09

 

 

thank you and if you have any idea the reason I can't make changes please let me know.

 

 

Don

In my father's lectures he often stated "when you are up to your ass in alligators it is difficult to remember that you main objective was to drain the swamp". :thumbup2:


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I find that any time I'm angry, confused, and/or frustrated are the times when I am most likely to both skip steps and to fail to realize that I've done so.  You're far from alone.

 

My personal solution is to walk away from the thing I'm trying to do if at all possible and come back later when I'm calm again and can start step-by-step through it all again.  Both computer and automotive repair have the same sort of pressure build up and dissipation for me.  [When I can't walk away I still intentionally shift focus to something else so that I can let go of the thing I'm stuck on.]
