I have an old laptop with finger print id, and only one admin account that is locked. The system does not boot into safe mode since the only account available is the locked admin account (I assume). My attempts to create bootable flash drives to repair or even wipe the system have failed. The system doesn't allow me to boot into anything basically. It just says Missing Operating System. Is taking the HD out and replacing it the only way out? Any thoughts appreciated, thanks!
