I have a old HP compaq computer. My windows XP on that computer has corrupted, so I decided to install Ubuntu on it. I used the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfEbsf06IwU

I download the 32bit Ubuntu iso file since that computer is 32 bit. Once I boot it from the usb device with or without installing it, the ubuntu logo with the five dots come up. It searches for my network configurations, and does not find it. Then it says that "booting with a network configuration.

Then this screen comes up: click here

Please help, I don't know what to do.

  • what program did you use to create the USB Ubuntu drive? – Goddard Nov 17 '15 at 16:48
  • Download the ISO manually and then do a checmsum on it to make sure it was downloaded correctly. – Goddard Nov 17 '15 at 16:50
  • I don't understand, what do you mean by downloading it manually and checmsum – Akhil Nov 17 '15 at 16:51

go to ubuntu.com and download ubuntu. Then you need to verify what you downloaded has downloaded properly. You do that by doing something called a checksum.

You can download it here - http://releases.ubuntu.com/14.04.3/ubuntu-14.04.3-desktop-i386.iso

Then do a md5sum. If you are on Ubuntu you can install it with

sudo apt-get install md5sum

Then you can check the iso like

md5sum ~/Downloads/ubuntu-14.04.3-desktop-i386.iso

If you are on windows you can download a program to do it http://www.etree.org/cgi-bin/counter.cgi/software/md5sum.exe

It should be


Let me know what happens after you verify this.

  • I did this, but the md5sum is not opening. I saw that the link I download my iso was different. I am going to try with your iso file now. – Akhil Nov 17 '15 at 18:31
