The story seems stupid but it is the truth, lol. I can't remember the login password as no login in the past 2 moths. It mainly act as backup server. The weird thing is that I tried two password recovery programs but it didn't work. Does this has something to do with UEFI boot?

It is astonishing how many users we get whose first post is "How do I break into a Mac or Windows machine", that's not what this site is about. Try Google.

You tried two tools and failed ,What does the computer show? Maybe these password recovery tools didn't help you at all, or the UEFI went wrong .

Note: If you’re using Windows 10, version 1803, and added security questions to your local account to help you reset your password, select Reset password on the sign-in screen. (This link appears after you enter an incorrect password.) Then enter the answers to the security questions and choose a new password.
Thanks for pointing out. I followed this and no option for password reset.

If UEFI is the thing that matters, you can enable Legacy mode and it should help:

Actually, you can break into your account using Windows install disk:

If you want to find the password in clear text, Ophcrack may work.
Any computer accounts can be breaked by Windows password reset disk.Which is designed to help users who forget or can not access their computers.
