The system may take a while to boot as SELinux will be relabeling its permissions on the filesystem. If you see the Plymouth boot screen you can press the `ESC` key on your keyboard to view the SELinux progress. Once it is complete, your system is ready and your root password has been successfully changed.
How to reset the root password with a Fedora Live Media
To download and create a live USB of Fedora Workstation, follow the instructions on the xref:creating-and-using-a-live-installation-image.adoc[Fedora USB Live Media Quick Doc].
Boot the Live installation media and choose `Try Fedora`
From the desktop, open a terminal and switch to root using `su` (it won't ask for a password)
To view your hard drive device nodes, in the terminal type: `df -H`. For this example we will use `/dev/sda1` for the `/boot` partition and `/dev/sda2` for the root `/` partition.
If you are using LVM partitions, type: `sudo lvscan` and note the `/dev` path of your root partition. For this example we will use `/dev/fedora/root`.
Create a directory for the mount point (use the `-p` option to create subdirectories):
mkdir -p /mnt/sysimage/boot
Mount the `/` (root) partition (be sure to use the actual device node or LVM path of your root `/` partition):
To mount root on a *standard partition* scheme enter:
mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/sysimage
To mount root on an *LVM partition* scheme enter:
mount /dev/fedora/root /mnt/sysimage
Continue the process by mounting `/boot`, `proc`, `/dev`, and `/run` with:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sysimage/boot
mount -t proc none /mnt/sysimage/proc
mount -o bind /dev /mnt/sysimage/dev
mount -o bind /run /mnt/sysimage/run
`chroot` to the mounted root partition with:
