My Son was given a Dell Latitude E6520 W/Solid State Hard Drive I7-2760QM 2.4Ghz for helping a friend fix plumbing in a new Medical Practice she is setting up. The computer came with Win 7 Pro and has been upgraded to Win 10. The down side is no one remembers the Windows Password. I used to keep the software when I was repairing computers and am not sure if I can find it or if it will even work in Windows 10. Is there a good reliable password remover out there. Free would be nice but if it costs like my old software it would be better to buy another copy of Win 10 I think. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks all, it worked like a champ. He has a new clean install of Win 10 Pro activated and all. I decided to just go ahead with it anyway before I heard back from anyone. I was very encouraged when it took the Win 7 Pro key and started installing. It is true, once activated With Win 10 it is good to go. Not the old days playing games and jumping through hoops to prove a legitimate key.

Download the Microsoft Media creation tool and download the Win 10 ISO. Save it wherever you prefer, I usually put it on the desktop. Choose the option for installation on another computer. I use ImgBurn (a free program to burn an ISO to DVD). You may have to change your boot order in the BIOS to DVD as the first boot device. Reboot with the DVD in the tray and follow the prompts. The first screen will prompt you to enter the Win 7 key on the sticker. You will later be presented with a warning screen. Make the choice for a clean install. Delete all the partitions and continue with the install connected to an Ethernet cable for updates. When I was presented with the setup options I declined the Microsoft account setup options for a local account so my Son could make the choice of password, Microsoft account or whatever he wanted.
