I made a system image of my laptop. I want to restore my system to the state of that image. I followed the procedure described online on many places (i.e. advanced restart --> trouble shoot --> advanced options --> system image recovery/or any other option).
I then select my user name from the list of operating systems. Then I am asked to enter a password. My password is however not accepted.
This is the point where I am stuck. It won't accept my password and it is definitely correct (correct keyboard settings too/only English letter anyway).
I've read online that I'm not the only one who has run into this, but nowhere a real solution is offered.
Does anyone know how I can restore my system image (on external hard drive) another way? Or perhaps how I can make windows accept my password?
I am genuinely hopeless at this point.
As an alternative, would it be wise to simply drag and drop the copy of my old C-drive onto "This PC" thereby overwriting the current C-drive?
Edit: I read someone suggesting I activate the hidden admin account and from that account execute
REAGENTC /BOOTTORE. Next restart and Windows should not ask for a password. Sadly it still does, so this does not work.
