Authentication password issue

Asked by Rahul Singh

After resetting the password from recovery mode (root), when I am trying to install ubuntu 20.04 from bootable USB it asks password but after typing the password it shows an invalid password. But when I simply login to my PC and type the new password I am successfully login and use the PC. But between the lap of time authentication password box prompted on screen but there is the same problem of invalid password. But after canceling it I am able to use the PC. Please solve the problem.

There is no root password in the install USB. There is also no recovery mode in the USB. You can drop to a root shell using the USB stick and mount internal partitions.

Why do you need a root password when using the Ubuntu installer?

Are you using an installed Ubuntu OS or wanting to install the OS from the USB? Is Ubuntu installed on the USB stick rather than on an internal drive?
