Default User name and password?

Hello,

I recently install OpenBSD 5.2. After the final reboot of the installation process I am prompted for a username and password which I did not setup yet. I can't continue to boot because I don't know the password and username. How can I finalize this install? Thanks.

The installer prompts you for the root password. It also asks you whether you want to create a normal non-root user account.

See http://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq8.html how to recover your root password.
