Hello, I've tried to install Lubuntu 10.4 (also tried 12.10) as a dual windows boot on an old Dell Inspiron B130 laptop with a 1.73 Gh processor, 2 GB of RAM, 37 gig hard drive, running XP Professional. I tried using both Live USB and CD but in both cases the laptop just shuts off during installation. Sometimes it shuts down 1/2 way through installation and sometimes at the beginning of installation. I suspect the laptop is 7-10 years old (I picked it up used).
I figured I'd try installing Lubuntu rather than Ubuntu since the laptop is old. Any idea why this may be happening and what can be done?
