    Default Trying to get on board, but many error

    Hi there BackTrack community!

    • USB persistent LIVE
    • Used a universal boot drive creator, then redid it with unetbootin
    • Each time I formatted the disk through the command prompt using commands such as clean and create primary partion etc


    The above is a list of steps that I've done to get past previous problems to get me to where I am at now. So I turn on my laptop and choose the option to boot the OS from my thumbdrive.

    When I select default or boot text mode The splash(?) Will appear but I will not be able to see my mouse. Sometimes pressing the arrows keys will make a screen pop up with what I assume to be the workings of the OS. IfI wait long enough, a screen in the middle will appear on it's own and do it's thing...Eventually I come to the following messages...

    Mind you I didn't right them all down completely so bear with me

    • Please enter the maintence password for root (The problem is, no input except for the enter key or ctrl+d will be taken)...the password would be toor if I could type, right?
    • I press control+d then -> umount: /cow:not found
    • -> umount: /filesystem.squashfs: not found
    • /cdrom device is busy
    • /dev device is busy


    I also remember at one point reading something about a debian CD and the architecxture.

    Any advice for me?

    Thanks!

    I would recommend you read the wiki and FAQ most of the "issues" you are experiencing are there.

    Alright, so it would appear that, according to this wiki, that perhaps my alphanumeric keys are in fact working. Just not showing. So when command line appears asking for maintenance password which is infact, toor?

    maintenance password means root password. In Debian the maintenance password is refering to the administrator password or root..

    Luck.
