    windows 8.1 admin password reset

    If you can't do it from WinRE, boot a Windows 8 or 8.1 Install disk or flash drive. On the 2nd menu, take the Repair Computer path, everything else is the same as in the link I provided.

    Thanks Shawn. I just realized I'm in the wrong forum as well, S/B tenforums. /Source:esd:full_path_to_install.esd is what I need then. Tried it, still get an error. I'll play with it some more later.

    How to reverse: cmd attrib -s -h -r /s /d *.*. and hit Ent

    The only way I can think of for you to reset would be to do a System Restore to a date before you did this or restore a backup image.

    The best possible way to fully format my laptop ?!

    No new needed. Once all partitions are deleted, press Next. The installer will create and format the partitions it needs.

    Can I Still Upgrade?

    If you have the Windwos 8 ISO and the install key then you can install it any time you want. You can also Clean Install Windows 10 directly without installing Windows 8 first.

    No, all traces of Windows 10 will be gone. If you want a way to easily get back to Windows 10, create a backup image to an external hard drive using a program like Macrium Reflect Free.
