Hi Nio,

TL;DR I've done some testing and failed to install 32-bit and 64-bit
lubuntu. As asked, wrote it up at

This is what I reported on launchpad:-

Happened to me, too - on both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures:-

I used Startup Disc Creator on a 64-bit Ubuntu laptop to write the isos to
USB flash drives.

When installing lubuntu on either of the 2 systems detailed below, I got a
fatal error.

This is what I tested, 32-bit :-
md5sum yakkety-alternate-i386.iso
812a19293dadd4bdb0c6cb3d02489535 yakkety-alternate-i386.iso

Hardware details:-
Dell Dimension 8400 - herschel (for 32-bit Lubuntu testing)
Intel Pentium 4, 3GHz, 32-bit, 512MiB RAM, 74.5GiB hard drive, DVD RW
optical drive, Ethernet connection.

I got an error message during install - "Load installer components from CD
- No kernel modules were found... etc". I first tested the 32-bit system
and I eventually gave up when I got a red screen complaining about not
finding network interfaces".

This is what I tested, 64-bit :-
md5sum yakkety-alternate-amd64.iso
e142cff24db65349ce5582ba41d56149 yakkety-alternate-amd64.iso

Hardware details:-
Dell Inspiron 530 - franklin (for 64-bit Lubuntu testing)
Intel Core 2 6600, 2.4GHz, 64-bit; 2GiB RAM, 466GiB hard drive, DVD RW
optical drive, Ethernet connection
I got the same error message about no kernel modules so I gave up on that
