Windows 7: homegroupuser$ password

25 Feb 2016   #1

windows 7 home 64 bit
homegroupuser$ password

I have a dual boot system, Windows 10 Pro and Windows 7 Home.
I went into NETPLWIZ and turned off the password option in the windows 7 Home version without realizing that the HomeGroupUser$ user name was highlighted and I put the password in for the windows 10 Pro version .
When I went to boot from the Windows 7 Home version it keeps asking me for the password.
The user account screen looks like the password should be the same for the HomeGroupUser$ and the Windows 10 Pro.
How can I access the HomeGroupUser$ password without redoing the system over.
