I've been trying to install lubuntu 14.04 on an old laptop in place of xubuntu to see if it runs any better. I've seen that 14.04 only supports PAE, but in the info for lubuntu it says you can use "forcepae" as a boot option to get around it.
Just trying to boot the live CD results in a blinking underline and it never does anything. I've tried pressing shift at power up but never get a menu to put that option in. This all happens in a matter of less than 5 seconds.
Is there ANY way to at least try it from the live media?
