after pressing CTRL+ALT+F2

the guide I found with the user and password..

The login prompt appears before the boot process is complete, so you ended up with a screen like this in which the boot messages continue after the Ubuntu Server login prompt:


Sometimes when this happens you can wait until the boot messages stop and you get a blinking cursor, and then just press Enter and get a fresh login prompt. If that doesn't work, try to login again from a new virtual console.

  1. Open a virtual console (tty) by using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Alt+F3.

  2. At the login: prompt type your username and press Enter.

  3. At the Password: prompt type your user password and press Enter.

If you still can't login, run the command: sudo reboot from the console, and maybe you will get a working login prompt the next time when the Raspberry Pi reboots.
