I did googled more and i found a something ,
Problem solved . For anyone else that has the same issue

Press 'e' at the boot menu (with the openSUSE entry selected) to get to edit mode.
Search for a line starting with "linux" and append "init=/bin/sh" at the end.
Then press 'F10' to boot.

You should get into a minimal text mode system without having to enter any password.
Type "passwd" to change the root password.

A little late, but yes, that is the method. Other option is to boot off a live CD and nuke the root password.

or boot from a live CD and put your KEY in the /root/.ssh/authorized_keys file after

Code: Select all
mount /dev/sda3 /mnt


to get the value after /dev/ you usually choose the last partition in the first HD in the system. This will show you the list of live HD partitions available

Code: Select all
ll /dev/disk/by-uuid


then you put your key in /mnt/root/.ssh/authorized_keys (since the partition is loaded into /mnt)

then you can log in via putty with a key instead of a pass ... and change the password. ;)
