    I assume you now cannot boot back to your old OS either. There are tools that can help you get data off you HDD if there is no other ways. And then you'll need to reformat and install no doubt.

Now I have no administrator rights and can't log in as an administrator to change the account type? I'm assuming there's no real solution here other than delete and reinstall?
