    Default Backtrack 5 R3 start up?

    Hello,

    I downloaded Bactrack 5 R3 , installed it via the the http://www.backtrack-linux.org/wiki/..._USB_Installer
    however when I load up from the usb - it goes through everything then comes up with a black screen (with a lot of writing on it) and just says root> (like in command prompt) .

    Also tried doing it via universal usb installer - still the same - absolute no go .

    Any help ?

    Im running windows 7 64 bit downloading the ISO and following the steps to the "."

    Thanks for any help - I really want to get it working.

    Login with username -> root and the password -> toor. Then type "startx" to start the GUI.

    Good luck.
