Windows 10 Media Creation Tool Bootable of External Drive?

I need to use the Microsoft Creation Tool (microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10) in hopes to fix my mother's system that claims her password is incorrect. The same password for ten years all of the sudden not working.

I can not access her system. I can not get into Safe Mode or Command Prompt (both from the Advance Options at boot I was able to get to) as they want the password too. Nothing I tried work. Trying to reset the password at the main logon screen wants a USB drive. Other options I have seen online, like resetting the admin account, needs that tool as it seems I can use those tools since they not need a password.

The other interesting thing is on the logon screen, there is no icon for the power. Just accessibility.

Now she has no USB drives, or a DVD burner and another machine. She also 800 miles away. My brother has an external SATA drive. I just can not find anything online where the tool will use an external drive (instead of USB or DVD) to create itself on, so I can attempt to boot off it and try to repair my mother's main Windows account.

Anyone know if it is possible?

"I can not access her system. I can not get into Safe Mode or Command Prompt....Nothing I tried work"

If you're 800 miles away, how is it that you were able to try any of these things?

Try interrupting Windows start-up several times in a row by holding the power button in & forcing a shutdown. By the 3rd time, you should be able to get into recovery mode. See 1st answer here:

Answer to your question, telephone. "Me accessing her system" is a figure of speech I guess, as she was my hands in this case.

And I have stated I have done all those menu options. Repairing Startup, Command Prompt, System Restore, etc. They all for some reason ask for her password, which does not work.
