    Windows 8

    Cant login into my live or local account.


    I got today boot call error and then i restarted my pc.

    After that i was unable to login into my windows 8.

    I am using Live account (note that i checked multiple times i am able to login into other msn services using the same password even tried changing the password).

    I have also enabled default administrator account but cant login through it as there is no option to switch.

    in cmd using net users my live/local account is not visible.

    Please note that as i cant login so any option will be through command prompt

    Could some one point out to recovery?
