This question already has an answer here:
I installed ubuntu 12.04 lts on my old cpu and it just dosen't run right (lags, and other bugs)So I'm wondering if installing an old version of ubuntu on a cpu with a newer version is possible?
Like ubuntu 12.04 to 10.04. I already have the .iso file of 10.04 and I'm about to burn it into an installer dvd.
Again, I'm wondering if installing an old version over a new one is possible as I would want to replace 12.04 with 10.04
