Reset Admin Password in VM without recovery or command+S or other stuff

Hello, I am new to this place. I've searched and did not find anything related to my problem in any of your forums.

I have a vmWare virtual machine that I have been updating since 10.6.0. I updated thru Mojave, but my system crashed shortly thereafter. Once I restored my system, the VM failed to work. I putz with it for several years and FINALLY got it to load!

However, I forgot the Admin Password (and my hint doesn't) and everything I've read to reset the admin password doesn't work (no recovery partition, command+S doesn't work, and neither does anything else).
What I'm wondering is, does anyone know of a boot CD for Mac OS X that allows a person to reset the admin password like Windows has? Anything to reset the admin password without having to know it before hand?

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

The only way is Cmd+S. Why it is not working?

I may propose to create new volume and install new system  and then grab all interesting data from old volume.
