        Because I have the local admin password to the machine I was able to boot to safe mode and follow the process, when I reboot and tried to log in to the domain admin acct t was denial access. I thot maybe I did something wrong so I went back to try replying the process, but this time there was no PassRecovery folder. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\PassRecovery

          Because it is a DC, try booting in "Active Directory Recovery Mode"
