I don't mean to clog up this thread with an unnecessary post, but I just wanted to note that I (unfortunately) have had to use (as recently as 2023-05-28): debian-live-11.7.0-amd64-gnome+nonfree.iso a number of times recently, due to flatpak being a corpulent space hog, obnoxiously trying very hard to fill up my /var partition (10Gb, as originally set by the Debian installer). But that is just a side issue. (Note: this is the Gnome Live image that has the non-free extra drivers, etc., not the "standard" Debian Live image. Perhaps the standard Debian Live image works differently; I never use it. And note, this is Debian 11.7 (Bullseye), Debian 12 (Bookworm) may also act differently. I can state that in my experience, unequivocally, it boots into a Gnome DE without any password needed. If administrative permission is needed to do something, "sudo <command>" works, without having to enter any password. Example: sudo apt install timeshift <ENTER> This post is just a FWIW. Feel free to disregard.
