when I try to install lubuntu on my Thinkpad, I get the message, that my cpu does not support pae and the installation does not continue.
I am a litle bit angry because I downloaded and burned lubuntu to cd because I read that it would be perfect for "older" machines. My machine is a 1,7 Ghz Pentium Mobile with 2 GB Ram and I can install Windows 7 on this machine (must be stone-age software).
So now I found out that the ubuntu has problems with pentium m processors. I followed then
and tried to install
12.04 Precise Pangolin 32 bit non PAE
I went through the installation process and after step 7
nothing happened. I only see a pink screen.
- You need a wired Ethernet connection
- At the "boot:" prompt, press the Enter key.
- Select "Install" or "Command Line Install".
- Select your language & country/territory.
- Detect your keyboard layout (you will be asked to press some keys.)
- Specify hostname for your system (for use on the network.)
- Choose your archive mirror for downloading the base system from.
- Partitioning - Most will simply want 'Guided - use entire disk'. [See note 2] for other options.
- Updates - Select 'No Automatic Updates' [See note 3].
- Let it install GRUB onto the disk. [See USB].
To find out if my thinkpad is the problem I installed in a VM (VMware) and got the exact same. See here:
