Ubuntu Linux CD: Default Username and Password

Posted on in Categories last updated October 28, 2010

Can you tell me the default username and password for an Ubuntu Live CD? How do I login using Ubuntu Linux live cd?

There is no password for the default user called ubuntu. System will automatially boot without any password. All you’ve to do is click on Ubuntu user. However, sometime ISO images are corrupted. So you need to burn new image.
