I am ubuntu lover. I have used eralier Ubuntu flavour 9.10, 11.4 and 12.4 LTS, and now 13.4. Not very expert in using ubuntu commands and not having indepth knowledge.
I have installed Ubuntu 13.4 directly from online along with windows 7. I am unable to login as Root User as I dont know what is my user name and password. Username & Password given at the time of initial installation process does not works. I am only able to login as guest user.
I have been not able access my storage droves, install updates and necessary required plugins as authentication by admin/root user is required to perform these action.
I have searched for this problem, and solution suggests to select Recovery Mode during boot.
In my case, Recovery Mode selection prompt / screen doesnot apear during startup. Instead that one single line information "Mount: can't read '/proc/mounts/ No such file or directory". Thereafter ubuntu login screen apears.
Request help and guidence please.
