After a long time spent with OS from boys from Redmont I would like to try something new. I decided to try some Linux editions, also Ubuntu Linux. I am completely new to this matter, this is also my first question here.
I am trying to install Ubuntu on VM created with VirtualBox. I installed succesfully Linux Fedora 2011 and Linux Mandriva, they are running well.
Unfortunately I cannot install any of the available Ubuntu versions. I downloaded and tried all four ISO files available on Ubuntu site (Ubuntu 12.10 32 bit and 64 bit, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 32 and 64 bit) but none of them would work. 64 bits versions complain that my CPU is not 64bit compatible, 32 bit version complain that my CPU does not have proper functionality (PAE).
My CPU is intel i5-2430M. Maybe something else is wrong? But what could that be?
I appreciate your help.
