    If you're comfortable with the command line, try this http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/

    Put it on a USB drive and boot from USB

    @Junessenly, I suggest you to use PCUnlocker Live CD which supports Windows 8 UEFI boot. Most traditional bootable utilities will be blocked by UEFI secure boot.
