Few Months Before In Linux i installed grub bootloader.I am given the password for grub boot loader.Now I want to change the bootloader grub to lilo but i forgot the password of grub Boot loader.How can i Break the password and how can i change the bootloader.......
Boot your computer using linux rescue mode
When you reach to chroot /mnt/sysimage prompt
After that type
You can see list of file that are in you current directory ok.
To modify grub.conf file type this
vi /etc/grub.conf or vi /boot/grub/grub.conf
Press I for insert
There is one sentece below hidden menu sentence
password --md5 $1$140UjOaG$Vl8rlyjkKOJpwzcafrl9q .....like this remove it by using backspace key.
then type exit
The system will restart
Then you can easily edit or use single user mode for troubleshooting.......
I probably don't understand the question correctly, but after a normal boot and login, you can configure Lilo, run the lilo command and you should have lilo as the bootlodader.
I don't see where the grub password comes in
