    Hello marks80,

    Please follow the steps outlined below to reset your password.

    1. Start your virtual machine.
    2. On the grub menu, press 'e' on your keyboard before the system starts booting.
    3. Scroll down and locate the line that begins with 'linux' (see screenshot)

    4. Move the cursor to the end of this line, just after 'ro quiet splash' and type "init=/bin/bash"
    5. Press Ctrl + x to boot into single-user mode
    6. Execute the following command in the terminal "mount -n -o remount,rw /"
    7. Reset your parallels account password by executing "passwd parallels".
    8. Type in your new password and confirm it. You should get a 'password updated successfully' message on your terminal.
    9. Execute "exec /sbin/init" to restart your virtual machine.

    You should now be able to log into your virtual machine with the newly updated password

    It does not work for me!

    also I have to know root password! I use M2 chip and I have big problem with Parallels it is not a VMbox like I used before. And Why I am starting with a parallel user! also it is not possible to see grub menu!

    IS there a documentation. Sorry but my general view it is no so user friendly. Where can I find a documentation!
