How to reset the root password in Rescue Mode
While booting the system the xref:bootloading-with-grub2.adoc[GRUB2] menu will be displayed. To boot the system into rescue mode using `bash` follow these steps:
Run the command:
Restore the SELinux context and permissions with:

Reboot the machine with:
/sbin/reboot -f

To mount root on a *standard partition* scheme enter:
mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/sysimage
