If you want to reset the boot loader password, refer to the instructions on how to link:++https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Reset_Bootloader_Password++[Reset the Bootloader Password].
A root password may be set up while installing Fedora Linux, although it is now suggested to leave the root account locked and use `sudo`. There are two common methods to reset the root password if it is forgotten or lost.
Changing passwords as root will not prompt for the old password.
Select the boot entry you wish to edit with the arrow keys.
Select the entry you with to edit by pressing *e*.
Use the arrow keys to go to select the line begging with `linux`, `linux16`, or `linuxefi`.
Go the the end of that line and include a space and the following `rw init=/bin/bash`.
[Note] ==== If your disk is encrypted, you may need to add `plymouth.enable=0` ====
Press *Ctrl-x* or *F10* to boot the entry
You will be prompted to enter the new root password twice.
The system may take a moment to boot while SELinux relabels 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.
Boot the Live installation media and choose `Try Fedora`.
From the desktop, open a terminal and switch to root using `su` (the system will not ask for a password).
To view your hard drive device nodes, enter `df -H` into the terminal. For this example we will use `/dev/sda1` for the `/boot` partition and `/dev/sda2` for the root `/` partition.
