    Hi, 

    I'm trying to reset a PTX1000 root password.  The KB document doesn't really match with what I'm seeing.  When I do a Cntrl-C, I get an option for two discs to choose among.  Then I get to the GRUB prompt.  I don't see anything about resetting

          Use the ^ and v keys to select which entry is highlighted.
          Press enter to boot the selected OS, `e' to edit the commands
          before booting or `c' for a command-line. ESC to return previous
          menu.

    When I push C, I go into the GRUB CLI.  Does anyone have any idea as to how to recover the root from here or what I am missing?

       lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible
