When the PC starts up, the first job for your BIOS is to initialize and identify system devices like video display card, mouse and keyboard, hard disk drive, and other hardware. It then finds boot loader applications held on a boot device, like a hard disk or a CD/DVD or a USB flash drive, loads and executes that applications, giving it control of the PC. This practice is called booting.

By booting with CD/DVD or a USB flash drive, we could perform many system configurations, this type of system repair, system restore, system reinstallation, as well as windows password reset.

Here are additional details about how to reset windows 10 password by booting from CD/DVD or a USB flash drive.

1. Download and install Rekeysoft Windows Password Recovery.

2. Burn a bootable disc with the ISO image file in the app bundle.

3. Eject the produced CD/DVD and insert it into the locked computer.

4. Reboot the locked PC (it is required that you modify the locked PC’s BIOS setting to allow it to boot from CD drive), and then follow windows password reset instructions.

5. Now login Windows with the blank password.

Aside from booting from a peripheral device in BIOS, you are also able to set passwords inside it, such as supervisor password for securing access to the BIOS port and preventing malicious users from booting the system from unauthorized peripheral devices.

Note: To protect a computer’s configuration, a computer has to have its BIOS password-protected and place its own hard disk as the primary boot device (default).

Strategies for setting supervisor password:

1. Power on a computer.

2. Press F2 or other keys to login BIOS display.

3. Select Security tab with arrow keys, select Set Supervisor Password and press Enter key.

4. Input password and confirm password as the magician.

5. Save all changes and log out BIOS display by pressing an F10 key.

The BIOS interface could differ based on motherboards, you might find Password tab rather than Security tab.

This way, nobody can get your BIOS to change system setup without proper passwords, such as windows password reset.
