I do have Win 7 PE too, but the 10 will work fine with 7, even for installing 7.
You just want to stick to the 64 bit, you can do both 64 bit systems and 32 bit systems with the 64 bit copy.

Glenn, The link that you gave is for Win 10 PE. I did not believe that that would work for Windows 7, so I did not use it.

Do you mean that the one I gave the link to never did work for you?
If so, I'd like to know if anyone else has had trouble with mine.
The file could have gotten corrupt in the upload to Open Drive.

Marty,
Bryan's does not have any utilities, only the ones by Carlos, with eSpeak,
which I don't like, but hey, it works.
You used Carlos's WinPE.
Other than the voice difference and the utilities difference, one would be
as good as the other for whatever.
But I usually need the utilities, so I use Carlos's with the crappy eSpeak.

You are right. My bad. It was Brian Smart's Win 7 PE and the program that I used to unlock the passwords was NTPWEdit.

I am pretty certain that Glen provided the links for the windows 10
Preinstall Environment, produced by Carlos Navareo.

I checked the Windows 7 preinstall Environment, produced by Bryan Smart, and
the program file Glen suggested you use to solve your password problem, is
not included.

Dave, I was just trying to remove the password protected user accounts and all of their files, so the computer could be used by me or someone in my family. I wanted to preserve the installation of Windows 7, as I do not have a copy of it to reinstall. I have achieved this goal and all is good.

I sure the original source was still up.
The only trouble with the originals were that they come as executables with
self-burning software.
I had to use 7Zip to open the EXE archives and extract the ISO images.
If I knew how to make a checksum, I could make one of my image and send that
to you to test for corruption.

Try using Universal USB Installer, it has never failed for me.
It will burn an ISO OS to a USB drive without damaging the files.
I have even done this on external hard drives.

Hello Robert:

After connecting the USB memory stick and pressing the power button, I waited for about 5 minutes. I pressed the power button again, the laptop powered off within 3 seconds. So, it was obvious that the boot process did not work because, if it had, the laptop would have taken much longer to power off.

Hi,

Without sighted assistance, How can you be sure it did not boot?

Some computers need a USB sound card in order for you to hear NVDA

while running the Windows PE.

If this is the case, you can get one from WalMart for around $10.

I Downloaded the 64 bit .iso file from the link you provided

Unfortunately, when I created a USB bootable media from the .iso file, and plugged it into my laptop and turned it on, nothing happened, it did not boot.

Sorry for the mix-up, but here's the 64 bit one.
BTW, other than installing Windows, most things would work the same if your computer is a 64 bit, so for many things the first link is useful too.

Your link contains " Win10PE_x86.ISO" which would indicate it's a 32 bit version since normally X64 indicates a 64 bit version.

Marty,
I put the Windows 10 Win PE in my Open Drive.
Here's a download link:
https://od.lk/d/N18xNjQyNDQ5Mjdf/Win10PE_x86.ISO
It is a version of windows that loads into RAM and you can even remove the
boot media after it starts.
With this you can do repairs or install Windows, get on-line and even
listen

to audio.
It also has a network scanner in this version to help you get on-line.
You just cannot install to it because it will be gone on next boot-up.

If you burn the talking Win PE to disk or USB and boot up, you can detect
all the passwords on your computer with a tool that is on it.
That is the Win PE with eSpeak, not the one with Eloquence.

Yes, no password can be bypassed by taking out a small piece.
I still would like to know about Windows passwords and if they can really
be
discovered as easily as Glen and some others here say they can.
As for Apple, what was said is correct. This case was when those two
people
shot and killed a bunch of people during this Christmas party I think in
California and I think it was now 2 years ago or maybe even 3.
Apple said they can't get into the iPhone which, by the way, was not as
secure as today's iPhones are, and I think the FBI hired some Israeli
company who tried to get in, millions were spent and I honestly can't
remember if they succeeded or not.
As for the Face Id thing and a thief pointing it at you that is only
correct
to some degree. If somebody snatched your iPhone and stuck around all you
would have to do is cover your Face with your hands if you are worried.
At
the same time if a thief stuck around they could just as easily grab your
hand and put your finger on the Touch Id home button or, even better, ask
you for the passcode. If somebody is that callus I doubt a lot of people
would keep their passcode to themselves after a few slaps or punches or
being shoved to the ground and kicked a few times which some such thieves
probably have few scruples to do.
The fact is that even if he can unlock your phone once with Face Id, he
has
to make sure it doesn't lock and having unlocked it with Face Id or Touch
Id
won't do them any good if they want to reset the phone to sell it or even
if
they want to get into it and disable or change the Face Id/Touch Id/PIN
option. As soon as you go to Settings > Passcode you have to enter you
passcode. Apple security is indeed very good, even if your phone was
stolen
and they have your PIN, you could wipe the phone and permanently disable
it
if you quickly log into iCloud and Find My iPhone also cannot be disabled
without the passcode, the only way to stop it from working is to turn off
the phone.

try looking for a software called konboot that should allow you to log in

otherwise you may have to re--install windows thus removing everything on
