After I boot the Live-CD I can't select try Lubuntu or Install Lubuntu and I end up hanging on that screen.

My PC specs are:

  • Compaq Presario s4214bd 2.4ghz Intel Celeron.
  • Windows XP/Ubuntu 10.04 dual boot.
  • 768mb Ram.
  • Nvidia 6200 Graphics card (I've switched between the onboard and PCI(this one) still no luck).

I really want to use Lubuntu and I've been trying everything for the past 2-3 hours.

Anything will help.

As nitstorm said, it sounds like a corrupted image, my advice would be to download the iso again and burn the disc at the slowest burn rate, thus ensuring the quality of the iso is perfect. – scouser73 May 29 '11 at 17:46

Sounds like a corrupted image. Try downloading the image again and burning it onto a disc at the slowest possible speed. Also check the MD5 sum of the downloaded image against the image at the site. Maybe that'll help

You could try to install lubuntu-dekstop on top of your current Ubuntu installation. just type in a terminal:

  • sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop

and then at your log-in screen select lubuntu instead of your current desktop environment.

In addition to what others have said, you should make sure to check the installation medium (CD/DVD or USB flash drive) on boot-up. To do this, select Check disc for defects from the menu. (This applies to USB flash drives as well as CD and DVD media.)
