    3.Next, select the administrator account.
    4.Now provide the credentials for the admin account you opted in the previous step.) But he didn't remember password for admin acc PC then reset well turned off now only misi flashes on black screen with comp on! And im completely unable to get anything else to boot even tried hard reboot pc turned off and stayed off until manually turned back on just to do same theing black screen with misi flashing on for a few secs

    If he still has the Windows 10 CD then he can do a clean install. Follow this guide.

    A lot of people have had problems upgrading from Windows 7 to 10, Perhaps a bridge too far

    Funny thing is that windows 10 was working as desktop with Cortana but start menu wouldnt pull up you click it does Little loading cursor then nothing like you never tried opening it... that is why i figured resseting computer cause i had no idea what was going on so figure trying to start over..,Also no internet connection due to earlier windows 7 and 8 wifi antenna....
