I opened a terminal and used sudo and got;
So I opened GParted (with password) and all are there. One thing at a time. I tried to see how to mount them but could not see how. They have always been there. I am a n00b. Learning how to use Gimp etc. is a slow process.
Before I posted here I posted in the Main Edition Support looking for help as I have played with all four Ubuntu Mint versions and went there by habit. Did I goof something up following advice there? I have not put boot code on my external HD though.
However, looking at your screen shot, I would say this, if I wish to purge a installation, which was previously install via synaptic, or apt-get, then, I would use this command
sudo apt-get remove --purge <name_of_the_program>
If you can open gparted with password...
well, it says your root password is working
so on your thread title,,,, Password no longer works,,, might be already 'solved'??
[/quote]you can always edit a little bit to a grub line...
or you can install easybcd on Win7 and use GUI tool to click and set default OS to boot.
or you can even have both of them...they all can work...

Information in this thread shows how to put the boot information into my disk3 sdd1 and I can clean out my MBR to get it back to what it was if nothing else will work. Earlier I tried to open the Software Manager to uninstall the Startup Manager. Maybe you are right. Maybe I should close this thread now and start another for the Software Manager and if I have to, another thread for the grub menu problem in My disk0 MBR. What do you think is best?
