I just installed Linux Mint 12 Debian Edition to USB using MS windows and UnetBootin.
When I boot a pc from the usb it runs satisfactorily, but it is quite obvious there are several issues to sort out.
I have 2 immediate problems.
1) Don't know the root PWD. I certainly didn't set one. I certainly wasn't asked for one.
2) When I load a terminal and type.
followed by enter.
The terminal responds with
[sudo] password for mint:
But nothing that I type at the prompt shows on screen. When I press a key the cursor stops blinking, when I release the key it blinks again and nothing more.
Any ideas please?
