LMDE 3 Cindy login failure after install

Post by davidtdivad » Wed Mar 13, 2019 11:55 pm

Problem
At the first login after the install, I typed in the username and password that I specified during the install, but the login failed.
The bootup seemed fine--quite fast.

Background
- I'm completely green (I want to have Debian-based Linux to run the Koha library system off of it).
- Machine: Acer Aspire 7 (Windows 10; Intel Core i7-7700HQ; 8GB RAM; 1TB DDR4)
- Installed partitions: At first, I had: ext4 (root); linux-swap; ext4 (home) ... but, the install gave me a message to add: fat32 (boot)
- Installation: Seemed to progress without a problem, but the restart button at the end yielded a lit-up but blank screen for about 30 minutes, rather than a reboot, before the machine shut off.

I've looked through a lot of online forums, but I don't see how to address this.
Thanks in advance for any help. :D
