Ubuntu: Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS asks for password and login before installing [closed]


During Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS installation, it ask me to write login and than password in the beginning.

What password and login I should write?


During the install of a new Linux machine, you need to provide your-user-name (e.g. maxim) and your favorite password (what-ever-you-like).

You'll need to remember the username/password as you'll use them when you'll log-into the computer, and will install software...etc.


  1. Login details

Enter your name and the installer will automatically suggest a computer name and username. These can easily be changed if you prefer. The computer name is how your computer will appear on the network, while your username will be your login and account name.

Next, enter a strong password. The installer will let you know if it's too weak.

You can also choose to enable automatic login and home folder encryption. If your machine is portable, we recommend keeping automatic login disabled and enabling encryption. This should stop people accessing your personal files if the machine is lost or stolen.

If enable home folder encryption and you forget your password, you won't be able to retrieve any personal data stored in your home folder.
