    Thank you Jim

    I followed the CD/DVD recovery mode, which works After boot from the installation medium:
    (1)choose Rescue system;
    (2)Login as "root";
    (3)mkdir /tempAccount
    (4)mount /dev/sda2/ /tempAccount
    (5)cd /tempAccount
    (6)chroot /tempAccount
    (7)passwd

    Then enter new password
