Trying to live boot for first time, but asked for login credentials.

I have created a live CD straight from downloading the ISO, and am being asked for login credentials.
I haven't set any as I have not gained access to the Operating System in order to do so, and I don't understand how I am supposed to know the login details.
Anyway, I started a live boot in VirtualBox to get a screenshot, and this is the readout I'm being confronted with:

Arch Linux 4.4.1-2-ARCH (tty1)

archiso login: root (automatic login)
root@archiso ~ #

I assumed at first that if I waited the "automatic login" would trigger, but this never happened.
Have I missed something?

I don't understand the question, autologin worked.  That's the command prompt.

Re: Trying to live boot for first time, but asked for login credentials.

I thought so, I'm wondering why I can't get to the desktop environment?
As you might have gathered, I'm new to this.

I'm not sure what you have read about Arch so far, but at the very least you should read the following:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_Linux
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Fr … _questions

This may be of interest to you too:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ar … tributions

Finally, if you're still interested in installing Arch, read this:
