password reset

Hello everyone,

I’m a new member of this forum. Nice to meet you.

I’m Italian and I hope to understand your thinking.

I’m a recent owner of a NUC i7 12th.

If you agree, I tell us my issue.

I setup-ed the Italian keyboard, then I create the admin password with some special characters.

After some restarts the Italian keyboard get lost and appeared, by default, the English (US) one.

So I can’t input my password because these characters “à” (alt+133) and “ò” (alt+149) don’t appear in the layout of the English keyboard.

Moreover, the command “alt+number” don’t work.

Now I try to reset the password to a simple one, without Italian special characters.

During the start I press ESC key and appear the UEFI, not graphic but text-mode version (see the attached image).

I don’t know the correct command, but I tried:

“password”

“password giorgioS600”

“password s600-gc”

Unfortunately, the answer is always “two arguments expected”.

I ask if anyone could help me, for the pw reset or other ways.

With gratitude.
Giorgio

Hi Giorgio,

There are different models of 12th generation NUC. For example:  NUC12SN, NUC12DCMi7, NUC12WSHi7. Please describe what is your NUC model?

Which password you want reset: Linux Administrator, Windows Administrator, BIOS User/Supervisor?

Hi,

the processor is the I7 1280p, but the model is only Mini PC S600.

I want to reset the Linux Administrator password.

There isn't a BIOS, but a EUFI.

@giorgio_c   You do not have an Intel NUC.   You need to contact the manufacturer of your S600 and ask the for support regarding their bios.

Well, this is a Intel NUC forum and not Linux forum. I suggest you to address your question in Linux forum. BTW UEFI is also BIOS. 

May be this article may give you some way to recovery.
