boot in single user mode linpus linux lite
I just bought an Acer Aspire One,with Linpus Linux Lite v 1.0.9. E on it from E-bay!I'm trying to add new software on it but for that I need the root password that hasn't been provided when i bought the laptop!after checking online how to recover the root password came to the conclusion that I have to perform a boot in single user mode!I read all the steps and know what to do except for the main thing!when I reboot my laptop it only gives me the option for F2 (setup) or F12 (boot settings)...I tried to press ESC before my system loading and getting to the main screen (desktop) but still nothing...
so what do i have to do to start the boot in single user mode?
again I know all the steps:
- use the arrows to select boot entry you want to modify
- press e to edit entry
- use the arrows to go to kernel line...
and so on!
I just don't know how to boot it to get there...
sorry if y question doesn't make sense but this is really bugging e as I can't add any new software at all
