Username & Password request Installing Ubunto-7.10

I am trying to install Ubuntu-7.10 from a CD i burned with the live CD ISO. However when i boot from the CD, it stop at a screen requesting username and password. I have not even installed the software as yet. Still just booting from the CD and I had chosen the option [Start or Install].

I try the CD in a newer computer and it boot without asking for username and password. How can I get it to boot without asking for username and password on the older machine?

Hi, and welcome to LQ!

As for your problem, there's nothing you can do to change the way a CD boots (AFAIK, anyway). Try entering a username and password and post the results.
