Create a bootable CD, DVD or USB disk
Use the following simple instruction to create your RWP bootable disk.
- Download Reset Windows Password package or use the link that should be sent to you in your registration e-mail (a link for the fully-featured version of the program).
- The ZIP package contains ISO image with the program and a special utility for creating bootable disks. Unpack the archive to your HDD, run IsoBurner.exe, select an item for creating bootable CD/DVD/USB and browse for the unpacked ISO image file (for example, rwpl.iso). Proceed to the next Wizard step and write the ISO image to disk.
- When making a bootable USB drive, keep in mind that depending on your target PC's type, you should select either BIOS- or UEFI-compatible partition scheme. Use 'Max possible compatibility' scheme if you know nothing about the target PC. This mode allows creating drives that can be booted in both BIOS and UEFI CSM modes.
- Insert the newly created bootable CD/USB into the problem PC, reboot it and change its BIOS/UEFI settings to make the boot device (CD-ROM, DVD-ROM or USB disk) first on the list. Note that some PCs already have this option set. Save the BIOS/UEFI settings, reboot once again and launch Reset Windows Password from your bootable CD, DVD or USB media. Some BIOS/UEFI has a boot device selection option, typically called by hitting F8 key. So there's no need to alter BIOS/UEFI settings at all.
