How to boot a computer from a Windows password recovery CD
All modern personal computers, in recent years, are able to boot from a CD. With Lazesoft Recover My Password you can start your PC from a CD instead of your hard drive.
The following are the steps to boot your PC from a Lazesoft password recovery CD:
- Prepare a Lazesoft Recover My Password CD.
- Insert the (newly burned) lazesoft CD into your CD/DVD drive, and restart/reboot your computer.
- If the computer does not start from the CD, change the BIOS boot order so that the CD/DVD drive has boot priority over your HDD in your computer's BIOS settings.
The following procedures are for setting the BIOS to boot from a CD-ROM drive:
When you start your computer, check the boot-screen for setup key. In most modern PCs, this is F2 or DELETE key. This key MUST be pressed within a few seconds after computer startup to enter the BIOS setup options.
If you are running Award Bios, press the appropriate key to enter BIOS setup.
Pressing this key will open a new screen showing setup options. Select 'Advanced Bios Features'.
Choose 'First Boot Device' to set your BIOS to start from a CD/DVD drive. Then press F10 to save your settings.
On Ami Bios, you need to press the DEL key to enter the BIOS setup.
Choose the 'BOOT' option for selecting startup options. Select 'Boot Device Priority' from the menu. And the set 'First Boot Device' as a CD/DVD drive. Press F10 to save the new setting.
Some computers have a option to temporarily boot from a CD Device. When computer begins booting, just keep tapping the F8 button to get a boot option menu and select your CD/DVD drive as the boot device.

"If you've ever stared at the login screen and cursed at being locked out of a system this program is a GODSEND. Easy to use and quiet brilliant. A friend's system had been brought to me with this exact problem (evidently their 9 year old had wanted to change the Password and had promptly forgotten what he had chosen)No matter how many attempts the Login screen wouldnt allow them past. This program allowed me to delete their old password (their 9 year old's name spelled backwards btw)and create a new one. System rebooted and entered Vista SP1 at the first try. Thank you. This is a great program." --Argonaught
