if you have selinux, don't forget to do "touch /.autorelabel" or selinux will prevent you from logging in.

you will have to change it in rescue mode


You need to do this:

fdisk -l
the root one is marked with an asterisk. Thus now you can use the following command to mount the root partition:
mount /dev/yourrootpartition /mnt
Then, to use your partition type the command:
chroot /mnt
Then type the command:
passwd
type the new password at the prompt request

Then just boot back onto HD.
