Username/Password incorrect after fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04LTS Server


New Member
I have installed ~5 times a ubuntu server 16.04LTS on a virtual machine (VirtualBox) and only once has the OS recognized my un/pw as correct. I have made sure every time I do an install that the un/pw are accurate to what I want and anticipate upon startup and login. All but one time has the combination I selected failed.

My question is:

Has anyone else experienced this and actually resolved the issue?

All input is welcome. I am currently in the Recovery Environment under "Drop to root shell promt" and chose "maintenance" but can easily reboot and move to the correct menu if needed.
