    You made it on your W7 PC, but are trying to use it in a W10 system?

    That is likely why it does not work.

    It would be a problem with the password reset disk,you need to make a new one again.

    I don't know if the the password reset disk of Windows 7 works on a Windows 10 computer.
    But you'd better use Windows 10 password reset disk on your Windows 10 laptop,now make a new one for it,see: The Best Way to Create Password Reset Disk Windows 10 for Another Computer
    bellemaru says thanks for this.
