How work with instance including UI via Dashboard?

Hello there.

[A small introduction] Me and my colleague as part of our graduation thesis have taken on a practical approach to use openstack to distribute OS images to the students of our faculty as lab working environments (just a rough description).

Being completely newbies on the matter, we ended up using devstack, hosted on a single node physical server which was given to us running Ubuntu Desktop OS. We also installed the KVM hypervisor to enable virtualisation.

[The actual question] We figured out how to spawn instances from images via dashboard and console seems to work just fine. What we would like to know is how to have a Graphical Interface of the OS's instance we want to launch? Clicking on "Console" opens an in-browser console which in the case of (let's say) Fedora image asks for login credentials that I don't have and I cannot understand as to why this happens because I expected to install the OS before anything else.
