I have tried Ophcrack live cd on my Thinkpad W540, it cannot find the windows system on my laptop. I think Ophcrack doesn’t work with Windows 8.

Hell, Dick, I am a computer administrator of a network company.  I think Ophcrack doesn’t work for Suface pro 3 if you download it from the official site and use it directly, for the following reasons.

1. Surface uses UEFI boot, but not BIOS, however Ophcrack boot disk doesn’t support UEFI BOOT.

2. Surface pro 3 uses the fifth-generation CPU and Chipset, however Ophcrack live cd doesn’t contain the SATA and AHCI  for that hardware.

3. Ophcrack doesn’t support USB boot, but Surface pro 3 only support USB boot.

How to make a Ophcrack USB bootable disk. you can  follow this guide to create a Ophcrack USB disk, and then try to boot your surface from the USB disk.

Hello, Dick. As I known, neither Ophcrack nor Chntpw work for Surface pro 3. If it’s very necessary to recover the lost password for your surface, you can  follow the guide in Surface Pro forgot password how to unlock, or you can perform a factory reset on your surface to remove the password.
