Hi,

Maybe it's a silly question but as a newbie on Backbox I'm blocked with the password and login to install it.
I downloaded twice and burned a DVD to install. After boot it, appear the login and password and can't continue.

Any tip? Smiley

Salut,
Joss

Hi Joss,

This is a type of question I put into "WTF" group. Man when you install system installer will ask you to set your user and password. If you are on live CD, you don't even need one, if you need root, just type sudo su in your terminal. And with information provided, i can only grab popcorns and wait for your answer.

Hi,

Thanks for answer.
I downloaded the ISO and booted from it, and the system start and point me to a "Other..." login screen, no terminal access, nothing, only the user and password. Login or restart.

I boot and appear the menu with the option "try without install", and after load appear the login.

Ctrl+Alt+F1 only show "Authentication failure" several times and no cursor working. Hard reset to try again.

The same ISO mounted into a VirtualBox, drive me into the desktop where I can install or test without any login...
I don't know why, but I can't install it. I googled but nothing similar.

What I'm doing wrong then?

Salut,
Joss

Hi,

Check my post: https://forum.backbox.org/howtos/backbox-linux-pc-build/msg10091/#new. Don't know what more i can say. Some point of hardware issue, BIOS settings, always boot without graphical card, then install drivers etc..

Yes, but i don't have that model in my room to play with. That study you will need to do on your own. I don't say it will be easy, but you are going to learn something new about hardware not liking Linux to be run on it (some models will never run, blocked on BIOS etc..). Check around on Ubuntu/Debian forums, search google for your model, just add linux in the end. I know that one older model was just fine 31M if I remember well, but yours, don't pop up as BBox friendly.
