Before I get to the login screen Ubuntu 13.04 asks for a password, and only then I see the users login screen. I'd like to get rid of the first password.

Does it say what it needs the password for? –  André Stannek May 10 '13 at 9:05
I have only ever seen one password asked for in any version of Ubuntu. Are you sure Ubuntu is asking for this or could it be the BIOS that is asking for the password? –  Warren Hill May 10 '13 at 9:16
Have you encrypted you whole hard drive during the install? –  captainjamie May 10 '13 at 9:30
@stonedsquirrel:No, it's a black screen with Ubuntu's logo and the empty field for the password. –  Silvio May 11 '13 at 5:39
@Warren: I don't believe it is the BIOS, since I never hit a key before this screen comes up. –  Silvio May 11 '13 at 5:39
