How to Reset Forgotten Admin Password in Windows Server 2019 with Installation CD

If you have forgotten the administrator password for your Windows Server 2019, there are a few ways that you can reset it. One way is to use the installation CD.

To reset the administrator password using the installation CD, insert the CD into the computer and boot from it. When the �Welcome to Setup� screen appears, press the �R� key to enter the Recovery Console.

At the Recovery Console prompt, type the following commands:

cd \windows\system32

ren admin password.bak

copy cmd.exe password.exe

After you have executed these commands, type exit and press Enter to reboot the computer. When the computer reboots, you will be able to login with the new administrator password.

If you don�t have the installation CD, you can also use a utility called Kon-Boot to reset the administrator password. Kon-Boot is a utility that allows you to login to a computer without knowing the password.

To use Kon-Boot, you will need to create a bootable CD or USB drive. Once you have created the bootable media, you will need to boot from it. When the Kon-Boot menu appears, select the �Password Reset� option.

Kon-Boot will then reset the administrator password and you will be able to login to the computer.

There are a few other ways that you can reset the administrator password in Windows Server 2019, but these are the two most common methods. If you have any questions, feel free to post a comment.
