    -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

    Google found this for me:

    The init=/bin/bash method is the one I always use and it works well.

    Good luck.

    Re: How recovery ( or recreate) lost root password ?


    If the method(s) ab suggest don't work for some reason here's a more
    complicated method:

    Boot the machine from a LiveCD. Any version of Linux will do so long as
    it's a LiveCD. Or you can use a bootable USB flash drive. Any media that
    contains a copy of Linux you can boot the machine from. Boot the machine
    from that media, create a new user and set it's password. Then mount the
    root filesystem from the machine's harddisk and copy the encrypted
    password from /etc/shadow on the Live version of Linux and put it in to
    /etc/shadow on machine's harddisk in place of the existing password for
    root. You must make sure that you're using the same password encryption
    method on both systems.
