    I just got done installing Vista Beta 2 here. I set up my name, and chose my
    background, but now it's asking me to log in, showing only the Administrator
    Account. I don't know what the password could be, and when I choose "Switch
    User" I only get "Other User" and I can't get in with my name I typed. It's
    I logged in under Safe Mode, but it doesn't keep any of the changes I make
    to user accounts.

    Any ideas?

    Have you just tried a blank password for the admin account? also try the
    password that you setup for your account, it sounds liek the install did not
    finish loading your account information.

  3. If you're using a domain, it has to be DOMAIN\Username - exactly like that.
    The administrator password is blank - just type in "administrator" and hit
    the Go button :eek:)
