Hi. I am chairman of a seniors social Club and we have just been given a Laptop by L&G the Insurance company. Obviously they had to wipe the laptop clean before donating it to us. I want to install windows10 on there but everytime i try to change the boot system to USB i get the message ' The Administrive password is set on this Computer' and I dont know the Password is there anyway around this or must I go back to L&G and try to find their techy guy who cleaned the HDD to see if he knows it? Kind Regards Kentona72

if you dig deep enough on the web you will find a way to do it but am not prepared to say on here how to do it. Just think of the security implications if idiots read the answer , god knows how many pc's hacked .
