1. First thing you’ll need to do is reboot the machine and access the GRUB menu. This can be done by holding down the Shift key as the computer is first booting up.
2. Next, press e on your keyboard to edit the commands.
3. Using your arrow keys once again, scroll down a bit until you see a line that begins with linux /boot/vmlinuz.... We will need to make some small changes to this line.
4. The last part of this line is ro quiet splash $vt_handoff. We will need to replace this text with the following line. Make sure to first backspace the current settings, then type these new ones.
5. Once you have made these changes, press the F10 key to save the changes and reboot your system. You will be brought back into a bash prompt, but only on this first reboot.
6. Your root partition should be automatically mounted, with read and write permissions. You can verify this by executing the mount command. If it’s not already mounted, use the following command below to mount it.
7. Now, simply use the usual passwd command to set a new root password. # passwd.
8. When done, we just need to reboot the system. The usual reboot and shutdown commands will not work. Instead, execute the following command to reboot the system and load into the operating system like usual.
