So Im just trying to install a new Hard drive and put windows 10 back on their little laptop... Nothing special, they just had their hard drive crash. Anyways... I know back in windows 7 i could just use the admin account to set up/install all the programs on the pc, then have it run like the first boot up again so they could pick their log on's and passwords and such. typically after that i had a seperate partition with a virtual disk on it with all their important files on it they could access to get them back. While i managed to recover a few things off their old hard drive, i cant get everything as its corrupt. I was going to try and swap the board off another one but i dont have any spares laying around at the moment. Anyways i digress.. anyway i can get get windows 10 to just boot like first time and use the admin account? or do i just need to make a temp account and remove it once im done?
