  1. Hi there, I am trying to reset my windows password with “Recover My Password” home edition. I have created the usb drive and booted it from the computer I am having trouble with. Everything okay except my hard disk has not been detected and I am not sure what to do from here. I have an acer aspire E5-551G running windows 8.1. I also have a ssd installed that I am not familiar with. I think the operating system is installed on the ssd. It would be very much appreciated for your assistance in this matter. Kind regards, Cass
