RE message yesterday my HP 2133 notepad has no disc drive can only boot from hard drive or ethernet ? still will not accept my username and password. How do i boot from ethernet ?
How about a USB drive?
Your best bet is to make a LiveUSB (stick)… if you follow these instructions, you will need access to a Windows PC, but you will end up with a bootable Linux USB stick that you can use to change your password.
Go to here:
and download the 32bit Ubuntu LiveCD ISO image
Then go here:
and continue from step 2
There are more instructions on how to create a LiveUSB on the Ubuntu page at step 2, just select USB stick, select the OS you will be using to create the LiveUSB, and click the “Show me how” button.
