Re: run ubuntu on RPI4, could not login

Heater,
I agree with you. what he said not make sense. I do have monitor and keyboard connected. I don't think internet connection is needed for me to login. if that is the case, the ubuntu web should states that. I wonder why no one asked my question before. I missed any thing?!

if there is SD card inserted, then boot from DS card. if no SD card present then boot from USB. I did not see any disadvantage about this.
any opinion about this?
