Login and Password during live cd boot

Hi,
I can't completely boot up the latest (Gem) version because the installer asks for a login and a password, and no matter what I enter, it comes back as invalid. Please help!

Hi!

Your Report is quite confusing to me.

First of all there is no latest Gem version. Gem was the last stable Release and is about 1.5-2 years old now.
LATEST Version of Elive is a dev-version 1.9.51. (you see, we are close to 2.0)
So what is it you are using? Gem oder some dev-version?

Now on to the next point:
You tell that you cannot boot up because the installer asks for a login/pass.

That is the most confusing thing to me!
Are you trying to boot from a liveCD? Or is this system already installed to HDD?
And what has the Installer to do with the bootup-process?
The Installer is a Program on its own and was exclusively designed to install Elive to a HDD and has nothing to do with bootup.

I hope that was at least somehow helpful to you.

Thanks for your reply, Alex. I found my answer by starting the live CD loadup again, and noticed that it plainly told me (I'll pay closer attention next time) that the login is "eliveuser", and the password is "elive". Again, thanks!
