I have this little Acer R3 and you have to enable legacy drivers to get it to boot to an external DVD drive, which consequently, makes it not see the internal HDD.

So I can boot the CD, but when it comes time to select the partition with Windows, it can't find it. What do I do?

What are you trying to do? Pull data from the hard drive or reinstall Windows. Instead of using a external DVD drive you should be able to boot from a USB flash drive.

 

You can use Lazesoft Windows Password recovery. Download the program and run it on another computer. It will allow you to create a bootable USB flash drive. Lazesoft will only remove or reset the local password, not a Windows Account Password.

 

On a Acer tapping F12 at boot should give you the boot menu to select the flash drive. If F12 does not work it may need to be enabled in BIOS.

reiterate - you can't use it on a microsoft account password. like when you login using your email account.

If you have no idea what the password is, and you know that the account in question is not a local account (and I'd say even if you know that it is), you'd be far better off to extract the drive and get whatever data you wish to get copied off of it, reformat it, and install Windows 10 from scratch.

 

The machine is already licensed, so reinstallation is a cinch.

"...Lazesoft will only remove or reset the local password, not a Windows Account Password..."  JohnC, I need to re-learn this!  What is the local password?  What is the Windows Account password?  I need my memory jogged and kicked into gear.

 

I see BriTechGuy and I posted at the same time  :)

Roland,

 

        I'm not clear about what you're hoping to relearn.

 

        A local account under Windows 8 or Windows 10 is pretty much what a user account had been under Windows 7.  It is local to a single machine, there are no cloud-based components to it (in any meaningful sense).   On two different machines you can create local account "Person1" and that user can have a different password on each and there is no connection between "Person1" on machine one and "Person1" on machine two.

 

         A Microsoft Account linked Windows 8 or Windows 10 user account does have a cloud-based component.  You can manage the password for your Windows account and Microsoft account simultaneously by changing it on your Microsoft account.  Information about what programs you've purchased and licensed, etc., as well as synced settings for Edge and the like are maintained.   If you set up an account on Windows 10 machine one using xyz@abc.com as the login ID, and you later attempt to set up xyz@abc.com on other Windows 10 machines you have to know the password for the account in order to set it up on the subsequent Windows 10 machines.  It is, essentially, a grand-unified account that can be activated on as many Windows 10 machines as you choose and there is a raft of information carried along with it via Microsoft's cloud storage for that account.
