I'm running Fedora19 on VMware Player for a project. 1. Using Live System User, I installed Apache server and several other things. 2. Using VMware Player icons at the top, I clicked Restart Guest It was taking too long to reboot so I: 3. Ctrl+Alt+Delete (Task Manager) and End the VMware Player's process.

Now I whenever I boot Fedora, it shows "Group" (A user I made during installation) as the user instead of "Live System User". How can I login back to Live System User?

The "Live System User" account only exists on the live media. It is a test account, to let users try Fedora before installing it.

Once you installed Fedora on your (virtual or physical) machine, however, this account does not exist.

In other words, the account from the live media (and everything you did under it) is not ported from the live media to your installed system.
