I am a complete idiot. Help me please!
call MS for pro-help. As a genuine Surface owner, they will be most happy to get your machine running again
surface tablets have RT edition AFAIK, there's not much about it since you or the oem don't install it on a hard drive
like desktops and laptops, my android phone screwed and decided to wipe everything after logging on my google account and
first sync it brought all the stuff back.
Don't know if you're using it with a hotmail or ms account in that case the same info (contacts all that)
should be available going with a desktop browser to live mail like i find it on gmail.
You need to login to view this posts content.
Also it's unlikely to be able to read the password of an MS account. Factory reset could be more helpful.
OK got it
His post did say he has the password in a txt file on the desktop. If he were able to use Hiren’s BootCD he would be able to Read/open/save that txt file. We are not talking about some hidden encrypted file here, just a plain old txt file.
Ya go for Linux.done .Plz feedback.
If its Pro, then just disable Secure Boot & boot from any PE (like Hiren's) & grab the txt file.
A live linux image will also help then.
Please try the free Linux program chntpw (chntpw.com), which is part of Offline NT Password & Registry Editor. It could be used to reset / blank a lost Windows password.
