While trying to install Ubuntu 14.04 I have this message:

this kernel requires a x86-64 CPU but only detected an i686CPu.
Unable to boot  use a kernel appropriate for your CPU.

What should I do?

  • Sounds like your cpu isnt a 64-bit one. Try to install the 32-Bit version and not the 64-bit version. – samsy May 22 '14 at 13:22

Go here ubuntu 32bit and click on the drop down menu and choose to install ubuntu 32bit it is the one you need for your computer because it is a 32bit computer.enter image description here
