Optionally create an /etc/fstab entry:

Add 1 (after one blank space) or S or Single to the kernel boot parameter to start in single mode. Reset password with passwd check if SELinux is disabled if it does not work (setenforce 0). If single user mode does not work ther is an alternative: Append init=/bin/bash to the boot options, remounting the root partition is necessary (mount -o remount,rw /).
