Reset root password while booting up?

I have a system that is full and a lost root password. Perfect. Has anyone ever tried the tutorial below where you can change the root password by interrupting the boot via console? Wondering if I’m just wasting my time.

That should work. I have used variations of that method.

Is this a physical host or a cloud server?
