So I installed a clean VMWare image of Kali and integrated all of my tools into it. I do this so I can just copy a clean version of the virtual machine when starting a new project. Unfortunately I forgot my password. I changed it from "toor" to something else, but didn't know anymore what that something else was. If you want to know how to reset the password on your Kali Linux, then read further.
at the end of the line: Then press ctrl+X and let the machine boot. You will drop into a shell. Reset the password with "passwd root": Now issue the reboot command and you will normally drop to a normal Kali login. You can now log into your root account using whatever password you configured!
