Is there any way I can reset my password without having that live installation thing? Its stuck on loading initial ramdisk...
1) Boot (or reboot) and hold down the Shift key. You should get a screen like the one below.
*Advanced options for elementary. Now you should get a screen like this:
3) Select recovery mode. Now you should see this screen:
root. Now you will see
Press Enter for maintenance (or press Control-D to continue). Press Enter
5) The system will be read-only so you need to make it read-write.
mount -o remount rw /
6) Now reset your password:
root@elementaryOS:~# passwd <username> Enter new UNIX password: Retype new UNIX password: passwd: password updated successfully root@elementaryOS:~#
shutdown -r now
