Forgot Windows 8.1 password and can’t log on to your HP Omni 10 tablet? More often than not, common approaches to this problem is creating boot disks with password bypass tools or an independent Linux OS. Because HP Omni 10 tablet is preloaded with 32-bit UEFI firmware, here we’ll use a UEFI compatible software – PCUnlocker Enterprise. Here’s how to reset forgotten Windows 8.1 password on HP Omni 10 tablet.

How to Log on to HP Omni 10 Tablet After Forgot Windows 8.1 Password?

  1. After you’ve purchased PCUnlocker Enterprise (trial version), you’ll receive an order confirmation email with a link to download the software. Unzip the downloaded file and you’ll get two files: pcunlocker.iso and ReadMe.txt.
  2. Then download and launch ISO2Disc, which is a really simple piece of software that helps you burn an ISO image to a disk (CD or USB drive). Locate the PCUnlocker ISO image and select GPT (required for UEFI boot), click the Start Burn button to create a bootable USB drive. If you’d like, you could also create a bootable CD instead.

  3. HP Omni 10 tablet doesn’t come with a full sized USB port. To connect a USB drive to your tablet, a OTG cable is required. Now you need to boot your tablet from the boot disk you’ve created. Hold the Volume down button and then press the Power button to turn on your tablet until the Boot Menu appears. Select your USB drive and press Enter.
  4. Now your tablet will boot from USB drive. When the PCUnlocker program launches, it will display a list of user accounts that are stored in your Windows 8.1 SAM registry file. Choose an account and click on Reset Password button. The program will reset your forgotten password instantly.

  5. Restart your tablet and disconnect the USB drive. You can then log on to your HP Omni 10 tablet without typing a password!
