Windows 7: Windows 10 password missing never assigned

29 May 2016   #1

Windows 7 Home 64 bit, Wndows 7 Po 64 bit
Windows 10 password missing never assigned

I upgraded from Windows 7 Home to Windows 10 Home about 1 month ago. No passwords or administrator account were set up.
The laptop is now asking for a password or a pin number when I turn the computer on.
It is also giving me a password hint which was never set up.

Tried to do a system restore from the partition on the hard drive, but it is asking me for a password also.

How can I resolve this without reloading the entire OS?

I loaded the system recovery disk from another computer. I was able to start the system. I went to the restore points and uninstalled the top one. I rebooted the system and it did not ask for a password. I put the password in when the system starts.
I reinstalled the updates that were removed and the system works with no problem.
Problem solved.

No access to GPT drive in Windows 7, no drive letter can be assigned
In the limited research I have done with the problem posed in post #56, I believe the reason the user is unable to use the drive is it is GPT and is protected. Is there a way to reclaim the drive and data in Windows 7? I am unfamiliar with GPT and do not know how to get Windows 7 to give access...

Password missing
My normal account has been set to a standard account, and now the only Admin account is ASP.NET machine account. I can change practically nothing without ASP.NET asking me for an Administrator password I don't know. How can I fix this?
