I have recently backed up my remote virtual machine and downloaded the data into my local. I did the setup on my local with VMware workstation and tried starting the server. I realized I missed copying the 2nd drive so while it is still downloading the 2nd drive I tried to remove the reference on the VMware config for now and started the VM again.
This time it got through but I can't login with my password. So I tried to start it with
single for single user mode (bypass password). But it is still asking me, here is a screenshot:
If I try to
continue (ctrl+D) instead I get this looping prompt for password:
What could be wrong, and how can I log in now? Is the problem because I removed the 2nd drive? Should I just add it back in (when the download is completed). Would everything go back to normal after and allow me to use the single user mode to reset my password?
