  • Hi allerdycejm,

    Would you please let me know whether have another administrator account or a user account who has administrator rights? If has, you may use it to logon the Windows Home Server and then reset your administrator password.

    If has no (meanwhile, has no a password reset disk), it seems that there is no Microsoft recommended way to reset the administrator password. This is designed for improving security. Thanks for understanding. For more details, please refer to the following KB.

    Microsoft policy about lost or forgotten passwords

    Hope this helps.

    Best regards,

    Justin Gu
