    try option 1:

    http://superuser.com/questions/952206/reset-windows-8-1-administrator-password

     

    to boot from DVD, enter BIOS pressing Del at boot, once in BIOS, enable F12 boot menu, then press F10 to save and exit.

    when it reboots press F12 at boot and select DVD as bootable device.
