hi akshu_13,


Welcome to the Forums.


If you're running on Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1, you should use the same password that you've set on your account.


If you're running on Windows XP, by default, you will see an additional Administrator account and the password is set to none. If you'll be using your own account and not the Administrator one then you should use the same password like in normal Windows.



Windows 8/8.1 can use a Microsoft Account and a Local Account. If you boot in Safe Mode only (not Safe Mode with Networking), you won't be able to use the Microsoft Account login as it requires internet access to verify your credentials, thus, you will need to use a Local Account.



Let me know if this helps you out.
