C9300 switch reset to factory

So, got a brand-spankin' new Catalyst 9300.  Racked it up, connected to console port with PuTTY, booted the switch.  Went through the basic configuration script.  When it was done, I tried to enter enable mode and found I couldn't - evidently, I fat-fingered the password. 

I don't care about the config that's on there now- it's easily re-creatable.  I'd like to erase the startup config and start over, but I can't seem to get there.  Is there a procedure document somewhere that will tell me?  I vaguely remember, with older switches, breaking into the power up routines and erasing the config from flash.  Is that still possible?
