Title: NTPWEDIT
Post by: StepOne on September 05, 2017, 12:33:16 AM
Hi,

I am attempting to remove the passwords from a Windows 10 computer with NTPWEDIT 0.6.
NTPWEDIT usually works very well but on my home assembled PC I get the following warning:

"Windows System on selected drive seems to be HIBERNATED.
Modifying data on this drive could be dangerous
Windows System may not boot properly after modification,
all changes may be lost or filesystem may become corrupted.

Please EXIT program and properly REBOOT HOST WINDOWS SYSTEM
Then use 'Restart to avoid hibernation
(don't use 'Shutdown' or 'Power off' commands)"

I have tried switching off Fast Boot in the UEFI BIOS and also booting from Restart but I still get the same message.

I would be very grateful for any advice.

Thanks.

You need to boot the Windows 10 System and restart or shutdown from command line:

shutdown /r /t 0

Hello JFX,

Many thanks for taking the time to reply.

Currently, I don't have any passwords for the system.  How do I shutdown from command line?

Best.

Well you can not shutdown, if you can not login.

There are other ways, like KonBoot or patching msv1_0.dll like PEPassPass (http://reboot.pro/topic/20045-pepasspass/) does.

I recompiled latest PePassPass version 1.2.1 with Auto v3.3.8.1 to maintain 2000\XP\2003 - Gena support.

Hi Chris,

I added your recompile as plugin to server:
Downloads\AppYGS\Security\Passwords\"PEPassPass"

Hi JFX,

Is it possible to full shutdown with utilmanager trick with SystemUser cmd at login screen ?

Hi Lancelot,

Yes this would work, too.

Actually booting any other option from the local boot menu (ex. WinRE)
will first boot the Windows 10 and fully shut it down. Than NTPWEDIT can do it's work.

But I don't know how it deals with the reboot/shutdown option on the logon screen.

Something new to me.   :cool: :thumbsup: :great:


Before, I only have untested idea: deleting swapfile.sys and hiberfil.sys will force windows boot normal.

But I don't know how it deals with the reboot/shutdown option on the logon screen.

let us know when you test.
 Here I only have 1 computer laptop and restarting takes very boring 20 minutes.  :whistling:

New to me too  :great:

If "Windows 8" log in password need to be changed or Registry need to be edited, first boot to Windows and restart normally from the log in screen ( don't shutdown - restart and immediately boot to PE )
Should probably work also with win10, I hope ?
