Lost in Ubuntu

If you have an old laptop, one way to still make it useful is to install Linux. And if you use Windows now, you’ll probably want to install Ubuntu.

We have an old HP laptop and I installed Ubuntu on it in November. Then we left the laptop sit…and we forgot the password. Two ways to recover the password:

  • GRUB (Grand Unified Bootloader) recovery
  • use a live USB and open a terminal to change the password

Now, write down that password!
