I upgraded to Windows 10.
Then I signed in with a Microsoft Account.
Decided I didn't like that, so tried to switch to Local.
It wouldn't let me keep my name because it was apparently now aliased to the MS account.
Tried fiddling with settings to change it to bypass that.
Account lost admin privileges.
Tried to access hidden admin to bypass that.
Safe Mode was buggy and when I tried to fiddle with it, I got locked out, and the admin lost admin privileges.
Spent hours trying to get around it, including resetting the whole thing, destroying all my installed programs etc.
Achieved nothing.
Finally managed to get Safe Mode to do something and re-instate admin as admin.
But then it added a password that it never told me and locked me out.
So then I disassembled my laptop since I didn't know what else I could do.

What do?

Nuke & pave

nuke && pave

Any advice about maybe getting some data off it before that?

Install gentoo.

boot from live linux

If you have a separate partition or external drive you can boot with live linux image and just copy the data over.

Linux from LiveUSB.

OP probably won't be able to mount the partition since Wins 10 uses a hybrid shutdown/fastboot thingy.

NEVER GO FULL RETARD
IT WAS AS SIMPLE AS MAKING A NEW LOCAL ACCOUNT THEN MOVING YOUR FOLDERS OVER, A 5 MINUTE PROCEDURE.
I thought /g/ could get this low, but it does.

Put it in the dishwasher

>>51555591
mount -force
Or just restart and and shut the machine at bios post, duuuurrr
