    Dual boot, forgot Windows login password


    I installed Windows 10 and Ubuntu (for learning staff) on my ThinkPad laptop. I changed the password 3 days ago. However, I can't login Windows anymore due to incorrect password.

    I heard I can use Linux to remove the Windows password, is this correct and how to do that if possible?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    You should still have an active admin password for Windoze.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    it seems that this is indeed possible.
    you want us to walk you through it?
    why, would that be faster than reading one of the articles?

    No. I did tried Ophcrack and NT Password before posting in here. However, they seems not help in my case. So I am hoping someone in here would help.

    not if you don't give us anything to work with.
    how exactly did you fail? what did you do, which commands have you issued, what error (and other) messages were printed out etc. etc.?

    Ophcrack can't find the password after running 4 hours and the computer still asks me for password when I removed it with NT Password.

    you don't get it, do you?
    who's ophcrack? your aunt? your granny? and why's she been running for four hours?
    you have to explain it from zero, and not assume that we're all using the same leet hacker jargon.

    Ophcrack is free and cross platform password cracking tool.

    op will just keep on posting short, meaningless sentences that have no impact on solving their problem.

    Yea, there are cases when a filesysem goes read-only. This case seems to be of write-only poster.
