    Going back to a previous build


    I have a Intel Compute Stick that is running WIN 10 Preview Edition.
    I would like to go back to the previous install.
    There are 2 files for old Win10 Installs, windows.old & windows.old (1)

    When I started to reinstall it gave me a warning "You Must have the password for the reinstalled program!"
    I don't have the old Password! Is it possible to recover my present password after the reinstall?

    Thanx in advance!

    After the reinstall you may need to enable the built-in Administrator account in order to reset any account passwords you don't know or remember.

    Whatever you do, it would be a good idea to make a system image backup before you start.
