User disappeared
Hi everyone,

My system was working just fine for over a year. All updates are installed as of yesterday. Today I rebooted the system and it showed me a 'Boot Menu' I never saw before. I selected English, it seemed to go through the normal boot sequence but then it froze at the splash screen. I did Ctrl+Alt+F1, the command prompt read "user@live-pc". I tried su - <MYNAME> and got "No passwd entry for user '<MYNAME>'. It's as if my username and login just disappeared?? I am confused. Thank you in advance.

RE: User disappeared
Seems like you booted a live system somehow.

It turns out that a USB drive inserted in the system was bootable... After ejecting it the OS booted just fine from HDD. Something I should have caught before posting here Smile Hopefully this will help another user. Thanks!
