    I've seen the other thread pertaining to this, but it did not mention how to boot a livecd over an operating system already running in virtualbox.

    What tool should I even be using to recover this password with?
    I have labs due tomorrow, and I honestly can't recall for the life of my what I set
    my password to.

    Thanks for your time.

    And how is VM different from a physical machine?

    Not at all.

    Exactly same applies to password recovery

    I understand that, I figured out how. Real easy.
    What should I be using to recover the password?
    Class in 6 hours and I'm screwed. I've tried PING and the pc login now.
    That did not work.
    Any suggestions?
