Booting system

I installed the Ubuntu version 10.04.1 in my personal computer
but when I first boot the system after installation it ask for
an administrator password.

Where or how can I get this password?

it is the same password that you entered for your standard user when you installed it, i.e. your password.

Thanks for your help.

But when I installed I do not need to enter a password.

Can you help me where I can find the password?

I don't use Ubuntu but I'm sure you would need to create a user and password before the installation completes. If you did not do that, you probably didn't complete the installation.

Use the Ubuntu CD and boot from it. Then open a terminal and run the command: fdisk -l (lower case Letter L in the command) and post that information. If you don't know how to get to the terminal, post back and some Ubuntu user can tell you.

You did entered a password at install. If you were stopped your install before that part, you wouldn't even had a system installed. Try to remember it, or do a clean install.
