Booting into Single User Mode
I've rebooted in Single User mode in an attempt to solve my issue, and after starting up, I get the message in my Console screen that says:
> Give root password for maintenance
(or type Control-D to continue):
But when I type in my root password I'm told the Login is incorrect. If I hit Control-D it continues along, and gives me the same issue where it stops loading and I get the "Init:no more process left in this runlevel"
As for Ctrl-D ending up at the same place, that's because Crtl-D drops you out of single-user mode and continues with a normal boot, so it ends up with the same problem as a normal boot.
Caker's suggestion of using init=/bin/bash will get you in, but if you're not used to remounting things it can be confusing. Another option is setting up a Finnix profile that has all of your disk images mapped and booting into that. I find that it's a little easier for people who aren't as used to using Linux.
I tried the suggestion for using the init=/bin/bash as well, as it was sent to me as a tech support e-mail, but couldn't get it to work either. Can anyone point to a detailed process for how I should use that one?
