So I have installed lubuntu on two of my laptops and they did wonders for them, so I decided to dig out my old laptop from '05 and breathe life back into it. When I tried to install lubuntu onto it through a LiveUSB though (same one I installed on both of my previous two), I get an error I don't know how to search up.

The installer's desktop mode on the laptop works fine, but when I try to run the actual installer, it goes through everything then after I choose to install with updates, I get an error prompt that just says "??? ???". When I try to close the error window or press "OK", it just pops back up, and I can't shut off the installer, has anyone ever encountered this before?
