  • Linux Lite: 4.6 64bit

  • CPU: 2.66GHz

  • MEMORY: 2Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Integrated
I have a older PC who is running on Win10.
It is very slow and i would like to install and use Linux Lite.
My PC spec: 2.66GHz CPU ; 2GB RAM ; 200GB Free Memory ; Integrated Intel Graphic Card ;
I have problem with my DELL motherboard, I forgot my admin password.
Without it, I can't download and use Linux Lite.
I want to know does Linux Lite has some MediaCreation Tool, to download OS while using OS.

To reset the password, Turn off and unplug the PC, open the cabinet and remove the CMOS battery for approx. 15-30 minutes and then put it back. It'll reset all BIOS settings as well as the password and you'll need to re-enter all settings so copy down those before removing the CMOS battery.  Then you can download Linux Lite, create your bootable media and install it or try it in live mode and once you're confortable with it proceed to install.


Hope this helps! :)
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)

Thank You for reply. I know for that method, but it will reset only time and date and system password IF it exists. I have problem with Admin password

Ah ... you mean Windows administrator password? The one you have to type when installing software? then, what does the bios have to do with that? You might try  the methods described in this article and see if any of those work https://www.top-password.com/knowledge/reset-windows-10-password.html

If you got the computer from school or work, you need to ask the previous owner for the bios password.
I won't let an old, but fully functional computer die just because some company tell me that they won't make no more security updates to their OS. Thanks Linux :)

Successfully downloaded Linux Lite without BIOS with Unibot (I think that's name).
I have another problem
It tells me that I don't have enough memory on C:/ Hard Disk.
I downloaded dual Boot so when i open win 10 I normally have 80GB free. What's problem with Linux?

Edit:
I found that i can download Linux for default OS but when i try to start it says: No root file system is defined.
Please correct this from the partitioning menu.
OK

What is/are the problem(s) now?
To try modifying windows password I could use ubcd. But it is not designed for you because you cant even do simple install and it is lot more complicated to modify forgotten windows password so forget it at least now. (maybe you can do it in the future if needed)
To remove some bios passwords temporarily disconnect the bios battery for few minutes (the longer time the better) and put it back. If it is non removable short it for short time do at your own risk. (google it for more information).
To fix disk space problems shrink windows partition with windows disk partition tool (google it).
No root file system is defined.
Please correct this from the partitioning menu.
To make it easier use automatic partitioning (install linuxlite without deleting windows) or read some tutorial about manual partitioning
