2. Alternatively, I get a panel instructing me to run xorg wizard. CTRL/F2 produces the login manager BUT a black screen, the X in the centre and a request for username but with no box in which to put the answer. All quite unlike the live cd. If I type the name nothing appears on the screen but enter produces the request for the password. The same thing happens again, looping endlessly. I am still on the original default username and password. I intended to change only when everything was stable and running.
Can anyone help? I suppose it could be a glitch in the system or I could have made a mistake with the installation. If it is the latter could someone give me some simple instructions for re-installation.

Hi Patrick,I had no.1 problem when I tried to boot with a usb drive plugged in. I removed it and it booted ok.
I also had no. 2 problem on the first boot of the HD install. I found that if you cntrl/alt backspace, it gets you in without having to log on
Next boot worked fine, and my hd install now runs flawlessly. V strange. mentioned it in my first post here.
Let us know if it works.
