Accessing the FileVault 2 Reset Password wizard via Yosemite’s Recovery HD
I’d previously written a post about Yosemite’s FileVault 2 pre-boot recovery options and how they can be accessed via the FileVault 2 pre-boot login screen. This process uses a Reset Password wizard to help users recover from login problems at the FileVault 2 pre-boot login screen.
I recently learned that the FileVault 2 Reset Password wizard can also be manually launched while booted from the Recovery partition. For more details, see below the jump.
Accessing the FileVault 2 Reset Password wizard
1. Boot to the Recovery HD partition
2. Open Terminal from the Utilities menu
3. In Terminal, type the following command:
4. FileVault 2’s Reset Password wizard should appear.
