I created a password reset disk to reset the login password of my laptop. The weird thing is that every time it boots up, it goes to login screen directly. I already changed the boot media to USB. What is the problem?
Have you gone into bios to change the boot order? Your hard disk might be set in front of USB in the order. Depending on the brand of laptop, getting into the bios can be done by pressing a certain key such as f10, f12, delete...etc.
Best of luck,

I already set USB as the first boot device in bios. The problem is due to UEFI. With it, you can't boot usb from it unless it is with GPT partition. I disabled it in BISO settings and made a bootable disk with Rufus.
If the problem is caused by UEFI, you can create a DVD/CD as the first drive, then boot your computer from it , this is a regular program guide, with many similar password reset articles on Google
