You are right! If we have one admin password the best way to reset password windows 8 can be using it. But when we have no another admin password I think the best way can be the following two:
1. Reset disk. You can insert it into computer and follow the steps to reset.
2. Reset software--Anmosof Windows Password Reset. It can let you reset your password or other local admin password.
