    I have a computer that i have access to the standard user account but not the admin account and i tried resetting it but it says it needs an installation media when doing so but i cant download or make any changes due not having admin rights and im unsure what the admin password was set at. i do not have a password recovery and ive tried every thing i can think of what i set it to. the back door admin has been disabled and i dont mind factory restting it but im not sure how to go about getting a installation media.
