Just made a CD and I booted from it.
It asks for a login the password?
What is the login and password?
Or am I supposed to be creating one???

I don't know because well it does not tell me what is supposed to be happping.
That would be stupid obviously.

Then it says user ubuntu will login in so many seconds but just goes back to
the login when it time out then round in circles.
Any logins I try, no login no password don't work either.

It looks really really bad to be honest - a bad joke all in all.

Usually means there is something wrong with the burn or download have you checked the md5sum for it, or at least used the verify option on the boot menu for the cd.

Edit - some md5sum pages

Yes I have checked it and it was fine.

However you have not answered the question I have asked so I will just repeat it.

What is the default login and password or am I creating one?

I hope I sound pissed off because I am!!

Why would it go back to the login if the disk was bad?

I have burnt an CD and a DVD and tried both same problem.
Maybe they just had the exact same error, a billion to one shot I know.

Pissed off at who? trash the disk, there is a program called windoze or something, pay for it and then you'll have a good reason to be pissed off!

No need for that :(

The reason I didn't answer the question is because I don't think there is an answer.

It used to be ubuntu as a username but no password.

If you have used a cd and dvd are you sure that the md5sum si correct.

Also it might be a known issue - what pc/laptop are you using?

That's right. If the disk is working correctly, it will not ask for a username or password. Thus there is no real answer to the OP's question.

The best we could do is suggest a new download. What is happening in your case isn't supposed to.

Also, don't burn the cd at high speeds, but 4X or 1X, make a quality burn.

Where did you download the cd from? The full link if you have it?

So there we have it I have asked the same simple qustion twice and
no one can give a definitve answer.
What the login, what is the password, or am I creating one.

Can't get a clear answer to the most basic question.

Yes windows does work fine and I do have to pay for it.
Ubuntu makes microsoft look so good.
It may cost a few quid but I guess I don't have to waste my life getting to work.

I mean look at it this way, I can't even get past the login what hope is there for the rest of it?

The answer is simple - none.

If that meant to be a joke?

Did the errors on the disk magically ask me for a password?

I may sound like a fool but even I have my limits.

Since the OP is determined to be arrogant and rude, this thread is closed.

Let me say this clearly: you're question has been answered. If you don't understand the answer, that is your loss.
