I just got my hands on a Dell XPS13 developer edition machine with Ubuntu 16.04 pre-installed.
Once I turned it on the first time, setup started. I reached the wireless step, entered my WIFI key, and it crashed abruptly. It then started a temporary guest session to "allow me to fix the problem(s)".
But now I am stuck in this temporary guest session and I am no able to do anything:
- I have no root privileges
- cannot create users
- if I reboot, I get back here
Any idea how to get back to the setup or to fix this? Thanks! :D
UPDATE: I have been chatting for one hour with the Dell support and, after trying a number of procedures, they directed me towards a clean install with the latest Ubuntu image (after installing with their factory image failed...). I am now trying to re-install the system without erasing it first. If that does not work I will erase and install a clean Ubuntu 16.04 copy. I have been assured by the support that doing this does not infringe any warranty terms. :)
