Hi, I've installed mint from windows with the mint4win application, liked it so much and decided to install it on its own linux partition. I uninstalled it from windows and then booted from the cd. After the bootmenu and the loading screen, when the desktop is about to load i get the username/password prompt. I don't know why. I tried entering user: Mint / mint / MINT and blank password and even the passwords from the old windows install, but I cannot get past the screen.
After trying different Linux distros over the years but not sticking to any ( i'm still a noob) , Mint was the first I had more than 2 weeks installed with everything working. Please, maybe you can help me get past this annoying problem. Thank you!
(I searched on the forums but didn't find anything similar except a post with a usb-pen but the user Mint and blank password fixed that. in my case, it didn't. )
