last time I checked, the root password on live images is disabled. To run commands as root, use "sudo". You can get an interactive root shell with "sudo -i". The default live username is "user" with password "live" if you are prompted. Once you have root access, you can use "passwd" to set a root password.

Kind regards,

My problem is that i can't get acces to the root mode, because it asks me
for a password.

I have tried live, admin, root, toor, user but still can't get acces to
this mode.

Could you help me??

Thank you.
