Can't login to Zorin OS 7, no username or password available


I am trying to use the live version for Zorin OS 7 core 32, and thanks to this forum have corrected a few mistakes I made while burning the software. Now I bring this issue in which I need help: I can't login in because it asks for username and password, but there's no setup process as found (for example) in SUSE 11.0. I have tried different combinations of the ideas mentioned in the similar threads finder, no results achieved. Can anyone shed a little light on this problem? Is there any site with instructions? Any help will be greatly appreciated!

@rokytnji: Tried your advice (enter/return key twice), no results. Checked the three links you provide, the one ending in 2054 is a most useful guide but provides no help for the problem. Also followed the link to "get familiarized with these courses"; excellent reading material, still no results. I have used other Linux live versions, ubuntu, suse and mint but have never seen a situation like this.

@Firerat: Tried username(s) blank, live, Live, live user, Live User, liveuser; Tried password(s) blank, password, Password...
Various combinations, no results.

This is so basic that it borders on the ridiculous!! Please help!!

@Firerat: I have followed your instructions EXACTLY as you posted them; I know the meaning of blank. I would like to know what you consider I am doing wrong, because your instructions couldn't be simpler... Still waiting for an answer.

@Firerat: No matter what combination I try, the answer is always the same: "Invalid password, please try again". AM I really the only one having this situation?

Md5sum checked on downloaded iso? Might be a corrupted download. That would be the reason you are the only one on this world with that problem. Just explaining.

MD5 checksum verified, download matches correct MD5. No caps lock. Any other suggestions?

Hi Mokoyombi,
If you have booted a Zorin OS Live DVD and it asks you for a username and password before going to the desktop, this is a sign of a corrupt disc. We would recommend you to try burning Zorin OS to a new, blank DVD at the slowest speed or burning it to a USB thumb drive using UNetbootin (http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/).
Best of luck!

Like the maintainer said. Burn speed or disk medium is now the culprit if md5sum checks OK.

I am a team member of 2 Linux distros and download and beta test unfinished releases so I kinda have to md5sum and double check
every little thing before giving feed back on what works and does not work on the distros I am a team member of.

So if AZorin says its so. I'd listen to him.

@AZorin: Followed your suggestion, used UNetbootin and tried booting from a USB, the computer gives me a message "No configuration file found" and "No DEFAULT or UI configuration directive found!" (see attached photo). This is happening with both Zorin 6.3 and Zorin 7 so I understand it is a problem with my computer. I donīt understand what this message means; any other suggestions? Your advice on the corrupt disk has been most helpful, now I just have to wait for my local provider to have more DVDs available (temporary back order). Thank you again for your interest/help with this situation!!

There are some suggestions for solutions at the Ubuntu site below. They seem to be specifically for Dell. You haven't indicate what type machine you are using?
