# Windows 8 offline login [duplicate]

I am away for the holidays and went to log in on Windows 8. Because I am offline and it cannot access Windows Live it is asking for the last password used. I do not have one as this was a clean install and I have tried every password I've ever used but to no avail. I am stuck I cannot get into Window. I'm sure when I get home and it picks up my network and autoconnects I'll be fine but I need my computer now. I am at inlaws and computer is only escape. Had to borrow one to enetr this request. Also how do you enter safemode from Windows 8? Thank you!

To enter Safe mode on Windows 8, hold Shift button when you click Restart. When Windows is nearly done through shutdown process, it will display the options. –  Alexey Ivanov Apr 27 '13 at 12:44
