By looking at what your saying, one of two things are happening, you are selecting installation and not live or the USB drive didn't properly burn.

There is a simple program designed to make a bootable Linux Live disk easier. You may want to try the program. I don't know much about the system your trying to run it on. Is it 32 or 64 bit compatible?

Ok good to go clean updated usb drive..but that darn username password..
tried 'mint' did not work..this is a trip

In a live session it shouldn't ask for a username or password. It should boot directly into live session with a username "mint".
Nope.not for me, boots up shows the Mint logo..bamm username/passwrd and mint dont work thanks though :)

We are constantly talking about computer systems, but the most used devices older cellphones are going to be hung out to dry.

Anything older than, a iPhone 5S. That means the the 5 and 5C users and anything before isn't secure.

I love the android most useless fragmented software ever released and usually not supported. They put it on manufactures and providers to fix most problems, which usually never happens.

"As for Android, Google claims that the latest version of its software is safe from Spectre, but if your device is too old to get the update you’re basically on your own."

Google will definitely hang you out to dry. Only the latest version!!!

Strange... I lost all my logins when I updated.
I don't recall that ever happening before.

I didn't have that issue when the update was applied  :-\
