Removing the login password request

To remove the password request (in order to be able to do the login again) you have to delete a configuration file… so, you’ll need to access the file system. You can do this entering the single user mode.


Entering boot loader (Grub) of the Eee PC

Turn on your Eee PC; as soon as the first screen appears (the one with the “Press F2 to run setup” request)…

… press and keep pressed the F9 key, until the Grub main screen will appear. Now, you have 3 options:
  1. Normal Boot;
  2. Perform Disk Scan;
  3. Restore Factory Setting.

Booting Single User Mode

Select (using the arrow keys) Perform Disk Scan and press the “e” key, to edit the line. Now select the second line (the one that begins with “kernel”), and press “e” again.

The cursor will blink at the end of the line. As the article How to Create a Rescue Mode for an Asus Eee PC says, to enter the single user mode you have to replace the string XANDROSSCAN=y with XANDROSBOOTDEBUG=y

Press enter, then press the “b” key to boot single user mode.


Removing the configuration file with BusyBox

Now you’ll enter BusyBox, a small Linux-based system, with an ash shell. With this shell, you’ll delete the configuration file /home/user/.AsusLauncher/requireLogin: this way, you’ll remove the login password request!

Execute the following commands:
  1. for the Eee PC 701 or Eee PC 904 HD:
    1. mount /dev/sda2 /mnt-user/
    2. cd /mnt-user/home/user/
    3. rm .AsusLauncher/requireLogin
    4. exit
  2. for the Eee PC 900:
    1. mknod /dev/sdb b 8 16
    2. mknod /dev/sdb1 b 8 17
    3. mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt-user/
    4. rm /mnt-user/user/.AsusLauncher/requireLogin
    5. exit

Press return to reboot and to enter your Eee PC without the login request! ;)


Resetting the old password and setting a new one

Now you’re able to read and edit your files, but you can’t administrate your Eee PC: you have to set a new password.

Open the terminal (with CTRL+ALT+T). To set a new user password type:
sudo passwd user
Press enter and type the new password.
Do the same for the root password, typing
sudo passwd
As promised, you’re playing again with your Eee PC without a data loss! :D
