    Password not accepted after clean boot



    In order to test my windows performance I did a clean boot as described here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/929135/how-to-perform-a-clean-boot-in-windows




    Now Im not able to login using my PIN code and when using my microsoft account (I see my account`s avatar and full name) windows says its a "wrong password".



    The password does work when checking my account via web browser( from other devices), I also did a password reset but still cant login.



    I tried the safe mode with networking startup option but got the same result. The "wrong password" message appears instantly when hiting enter. It doesnt seem to check it online.

    :)

    You can reset your password following the next steps:

    • Reboot your computer / Turn your computer on.
    • Hold down the Shift key at the start of the boot process to enable the GNU GRUB boot menu (if it does not show)
    • Press ESC at the GNU GRUB prompt.
    • Press e for edit.
    • Use the Arrow keys to highlight the line that begins with kernel and press the e key.
    • Go to the very end of the line and add rw init=/bin/bash
    • Press Enter and then press b to boot your system.
    • Your system will boot up to a passwordless root shell.
    • Type in passwd yourusername
    • Set your new password.
    • Restart your system.

  4. Password not accepted after clean boot

    My windows password won't be accepted.

    Hello,

    We appreciate your persistent patience on this issue.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to create a new user account.

    Step 1: I suggest you to boot the device to Safe mode with networking from lock screen.

    Refer to: From the sign-in screen


    Step 2: Once you are in Safe mode, I recommend you to add another user account.

    Follow the below steps to create new user account from Safe mode:

    • Press Windows + X key together on your desktop screen.
    • Click on Command Prompt (admin) to open
      Command Prompt
      .
    • Type the following command and hit Enter:
    • net user <new user name> <password> /add" (substituting the desired username for "new user name" and the desired password for "password" example: "net user newuser 12345 /add"
      (Check for the spaces)
    • Close the command prompt and restart the computer to check if you are able to see the new user account.

    Let us know if the above recommendation is helpful.

    Thank You.
