Are you using Windows 7? I'm sorry, Windows 7 can only be started with the recovery key or a BEK file, Windows 7 doesn't allow us to type password prior to receiving the login screen even if we are using Windows 7 Enterprise Edition, using the password to start Windows is not implemented in Windows 7.
