I want to boot Linux Mint Rafaela from a live USB Stick. The MD5 checksum is correct.

I am asked for a password. In the documentation I can find following: Typ as Login: "Mint" Password: -empty-

I also tried Login: "mint" Password: -empty- I can't reach the console with strg+alt+F1 or similar combinations, so it is not possible to start Linux Mint Rafaela from a live USB Stick for me. Any suggestions?

I can't take pictures but here are the steps:

  1. A screen with 3 possible choices: a) Start Linux Mint 17.2 Cinnamon 64-bit b) Start Linux Mint 17.2 Cinnamon 64-bit (compatibility mode) c) Check the integrity of the medium I choose e.g. a)

  2. A green Logo with Letters lm appears

  3. A Screen with a random pic and a Login window appears. I don't want to describe the login window. It is nothing special. Just a window with first your Login and then enter and then Password, enter. In the right upper corner with red letters there is the message: "Incorrect username or password..."

WHO HAD THE IDEA TO ASK FOR A PASSWORD IN THE FIRST SESSION? I don't know the password!

  • Did you try leaving the password empty? Just hitting enter? – terdon Sep 5 '15 at 14:41
  • Yes I left the password empty. I just hit enter. – user131191 Sep 5 '15 at 14:49
  • When are you asked for a password? Could you edit your question and include the exact steps you followed? From the first screen you saw until you are asked for a password. – terdon Sep 5 '15 at 15:03

Ok I compiled a live usb with unetbootin this time instead of using dd command with bash. It was the same .iso file, but this time I dont get a Login screen. Everything works fine.
