Can Win 8 be reset free of old logons and passwords?

I recently received a donation at our non-profit from a school of some 13 in. HP Streams with Win 8. When I go to install Win 10 on them from a USB, I am asked for a login and password, which I don't have. Is there any way to reset Win 8 so that it is free of logons and passwords?

and the HP Stream 13 has no DVD player. Tho where I volunteer there is a player that can be hooked up thru usbs. I don't presently have the Srteam 13 or the Player at home. What is the name of the App? I have Hirens 10.1

Turns out I was using a Rufus USB set for MBR not GPT for a Win 10 install. After I made the switch to GPT it installed fine, tho it overwrote the software that accompanied the Win 8. So you got me thinking.
