Re: [BUG Report] Serious Pi password BUG!!!!!!!

@berrypi2015 Given that, historically, there were (still are?) issues with the desktop GUI version of raspi-config cf. the "command-line" version can you confirm which you are using? And also did you only change the password and then reboot? (with boot to desktop enabled?) Trev. I can remembered th...

Re: Any suggestion to extract hidden volume?

It's not hidden, it's just that windows has limited partition table and file system support so linux is the best way. use linux as an alternate boot option, or use linux in virtual box or use linux in cygwin (less good option). There might be a free or foss tool for windows to do what you want but ...

Re: [BUG Report] Serious Pi password BUG!!!!!!!

I suspect you may be best to start again. Test each install as you do it, which may give some indication which of those caused the problem. I'm pretty sure it won't be any thing to do with passwords - that's standard Linux code, and issues in there would be well known. Looking deep into it. I would...

Re: [BUG Report] Serious Pi password BUG!!!!!!!

Could you clarify, what is the password bug? What do I have to do to see this serious bug? Taking your query at face value - isn't it the behaviour reported by the OP in the initial post of this thread? (But as others have hinted, I suspect the unexpected behaviour is unrelated to the change of pas...

having changed the password do ctrl-alt-f3 or alt-f3 so you have a new terminal window and login with the new password does that work That's the same thing as Ctrl+Alt+F3 = Ctrl+Alt+F1 method.
