1. Boot Computer using any Live Linux CD/DVD or USB. Start up the computer with a Linux live CD (or USB key). You can use any Linux distro such as Debian, Ubuntu or even Kali.
2. Mount Filesystem. Using the Disk Utilities available from your device, mount the partition that hosts your /etc folder (probably marked as bootable).
3. Identify correct shadow file in correct /etc folder. In a command line, go to ./ etc under your mounted partition, probably in /mnt and contains a long hd id-like number.
4. Make a backup of the shadow file. Just to be safe, make a backup copy of your shadow file. I used cp ./ shadow /media/[an inserted and mounted USB key]/shadow command.
5. Open shadow file using any text editor. Using your favorite text editor (vi, nano or pico), edit your shadow file. vi shadow (or) nano shadow (or) pico shadow.
6. Locate the root line. It’ll look something like root:[encrypted pw]:12345:5:99999::: (You’ll have a some random numbers is there)
7. Replace encrypted password line. Replace the [encrypted pw] part of the line with a single ! exclamation mark without double quotations. That tells Linux to authorize the mentioned user to access the system with no pw, so be cautious !
8. Save changes. Save your changes and exit the command line.
9. Unmount the partition. Back to your Disk Utilities program, unmount the partition you mounted in step 2 above. umount /dev/sdaX (or) sudo umount /dev/sdaX.
10. Poweroff and remove boot media. Poweroff your computer and remove all media, may it be USB key, CD, or whatever.
