Hi...
There are some free Windows recovery tools available on the Internet like Ophcrack, PC Login Now, Kon-Boot, Cain & Abel, LCP and many more. there is no need to access windows for that. download free ISO image, burn it to CD and boot it from the CD.it locates the User account and automatically crack the password. hope this will help you try it.

If you put it in a usb stick 1. Go to boot settings [f2], 2. Put usb as first boot device, 3. Restart, 4. Open program.
Hope you get it.

You can also use DOS to make the usb bootable, but what I meant was, you cant boot an ISO natively.

Use kon-boot, I used it when my mate locked himself out of his computer.
