My suggestion is to reset (or reinstall Mint, and set) the password to 
something simple "fish" for example, and the previous email is the 
method I'd use.  If you go that route and get stuck, give us a shout.

As for my boot loader suggestions, that was to get Grub working, it's 
just my preference, so ignore it at your leisure:)
