Printer-friendly versionPDF version

With the latest Hirens Boot CD, you can reset local user account passwords, or unlock accounts. This works for Windows XP, Vista, and 7. Does it work for Windows 8 & Windows 8.1?

Hirens Boot CD doesn't

Hirens Boot CD doesn't support UEFI booting and I'm unable to get it to boot my Surface Pro Windows 8 tablet. After spending almost a whole day, I found another utility - PCUnlocker Live CD, which worked perfect. It's worth a try!
