    Did you mean "Linux" or did you mean "Linx"?

    If you meant Linx then you could search this forum for that word.
    - As is discussed in some other threads, using the 'pc' procedure for recovery operations often requires a physically-connected keyboard so you would need one of these to use these 'pc' procedures.
    - @dacrone has posted a link to a YouTube video that might help you.
    - You might find additional guidance in the Linx 7 forum

    I expect that you will discover that recovery procedures such as the one you currently need are impossible without a physically-connected keyboard.

    I have a tablet and I bought a [special-to-type] keyboard with it to avoid the problem you are facing.
    - If I only had a WiFi / Bluetooth keyboard then it would not function until Windows had loaded so it would be no use for fixing boot problems or enabling the Built-in Admin account as you now need to do.
    - You need a keyboard that connects to your type of USB connection [MicroUSB / USB C probably or standard-sized USB if you have one] & I'd urge you to check the Linx forum for that aspect of the problem aswell in case there are any special considerations.
    - Perhaps the Linx website sells keyboards or at least defines which types you could use [so that you could buy one cheaper online from elsewhere].
    - I would imagine that many USB keyboards have full-sized USB connectors that can work correctly through some USB-MicroUSB / USB-USBC adapters but not some other adapters. So recommendations from other Linx users would seem to be vital.
    - If you have friends with desktop computers then they might have USB-connected keyboards that you could experiment with.

    Best of luck,
    Denis
