    I tried this and I dont know, it doesn't work I guess.
    See attached. This step I click on CHANGE/RESET and then nothing happens.
    It hangs!

    seems you got more issues than a password. Try making a bootable usb thumb drive, it might be your dvd/cd rom sucks.

    No, its just the password. Just the password says incorrect, so all I need is to change the password.

    I already made this as bootable CD and did it.
    Not sure, whats wrong now.
