And now press Enter to save your changes.

Boot your temporary options

From this menu, you should already be on the kernel /vmlinuz... line.
Press the 'b' key to boot to these temporary options to allow you to recover your root account.

Now you will boot up to the root shell and you can use passwd to set your new password.
