Raspbian Stretch Lite Preload - can't log in

Installed into a Raspberry Pi Zero W and it booted fine. But once it presents the login prompt, 'pi' and 'raspberry' do not work. I guess I could re-flash the media but what would be the point in buying the pre-load? What login did you use because I cannot find it documented anywhere? I've tried 'root' / 'root', I've tried 'root' / 'toor'. Nothing appears to work. USB-attached keyboard.

Also, why is the micro SD card write protected? I've even tried a different SD carrier and ensured the write protect is off but Ubuntu can't mount it for write.

Hmm. It should be the standard pi/raspberry combo. Does it seem to be booting OK otherwise?

And the read only behavior is odd, but could be something linux is doing when it mounts the SD card. Maybe check dmesg after you put in the SD card and see if there is anything useful there.

It is pretty easy to just install an new OS image if you're up for it:

Esp. now with Etcher which is very easy and is the same tool for all platforms:

Found it. The [s] key on the keyboard is failing so ra[]pberry gets entered. Replaced keyboard and it works.

Ugh. Yah, that'll do it. Glad you figured it out.
