Hi killmasta93,

your screenshot is showing only disk scan. I'm I right thinking you don't get to the graphical login page?

If you are stuck on the cli login try Alt+F7 and that should take you to graphical console.

Thanks for the reply, i tried the following which you mention but nothing
the issue is that normally it shows the name of the server and shows login screen like this

now that's a better screen :)

you can clearly see that you are on the command-line console (tty1 to tty6), tty7 is what you need.

You don't explain what hypervisor you are using so try to figure yourself how to change console. Use this as a hint https://askubuntu.com/questions/1138357/how-to-enable-switch-back-to-running-gui-from-tty-in-18-04.

Alt+F7 or Ctrl+Alt+F7 does normally work.

Thank you so much for the reply, currently using proxmox as my visor using novnc,
Currently i tried the below commands cant seem to get it working either, so this happens because it upgrade to tty7?

Thank you

proxmox with noVNC

It happens sometime that my setup goes to tty1 (for whatever reason)

expand the noVNC side menu, toggle ALT and press F7 on your keyboard. Does work for me..

hmm, doesn't this answer your question?

I think you've decided not to install Window Manager in which case you will only be able to access the server via SSH/noVNC command line or webadmin (https://ip:8443).

You won't get graphical user login without Window manager installed.
