Insert a Boot CD and start the miniroot. From there you can mount the disk (sometimes its already mountet). Than you can use an editor like vi to clear the password for the root user.

The second solution it to put the disk into a machine which can read/write the xfs filesystem editing the etc/passwd

Otherwise test if there is a unlocked account like guest,lp or others and use a local root exploit.
