You can use the Rescue system to reset a lost Windows password.

1) Start the rescue mode in the central customer management.
2) Use the Putty program to connect to the server that is in rescue.
3) Enter the following command: (HDD and SSD)

-------> without raid <-------:
apt-get update
apt-get install qemu -fy
curl -O -J https://fileshare.myloc.de/index.php/s/Fix7xxQPSQeQMQ2/download
qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -hda /dev/sda -vnc :12 -m 1024 -cpu host,+nx -cdrom pwrecover.iso -boot d



-------> with raid <-------:
apt-get update
apt-get install qemu -fy
curl -O -J https://fileshare.myloc.de/index.php/s/Fix7xxQPSQeQMQ2/download

11) Press "Ctrl + C" in the Putty window.
