    Red face Error during install from direct download.

    Hey everyone

    I am kind of new to Ubuntu, and I have been tasked at work to setup an Ubuntu Apache2, perl, and Squid server. Which I have been learning.

    But I was installing Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit, downloaded right from the ubuntu webpage. I am running it through a VMware Workstation and I can install from an actual CD/DVD, that worked for me. I have also downloaded the iso 2 times thinking that maybe it was a bad download.

    I still keep getting this error;

    sorry cant figure out how to post picture in here lol)

    ################################################## ############
    [!!] Install the base system
    Cannot install Kernel
    The installer cannot find a suitable kernel package to install.
    ################################################## #############

    any help on this would be thankful.

    Thanks
    Paul

    or
    http://mirrors.melbourne.co.uk/ubunt...2.04.1/MD5SUMS

    e.g
    Code:
    a8c667e871f48f3a662f3fbf1c3ddb17 *ubuntu-12.04.1-server-amd64.iso
    The part in italic red is the MD5sum for the specific iso. On the computer that you used to download the iso, you can verify it. If that's a Linux box, you can use md5sum. For Windows, there are utilities available like digestit.

    Note: you verify the downloaded iso itself !

    If you don't make backups of your important data, your data is obviously not important to you.

    this could mean there's a mismatch between the OS you're trying to install and the hardware (CPU, ...) you're trying to install it on.
    As in : you might be trying to install 64 bit Ubuntu on a 32 bit machine, that sort of thing.
