    What do you mean by 'successfully'? Did it work for some time and then stopped?

    How does a live boot of 13.10 work?

    So either 13.10 does not work out of the box or it's too heavy in a live boot. 13.04 is supported a couple of months more, and when that is ending you could try installing 13.10 again through the mini.iso or try Bodhi.

    Some more memory would be a big help for the old computer. Should cost very little second hand.
