the first question to ask is did you check the MD5SUM of the ISO you

This is an important step to take, it helps to make sure you downloaded
everything correctly.
If the MD5SUM doesn't match the problem is the image.

If the image checks out we can go from there to investigate this issue.
Also, what processor architecture are you using?  Are you using an intel
mac, or is iMac PPC?
And did you download 32bit Lubuntu, or a different image?
And finally what version of Lubuntu are you using (14.04???)?
The uname -a command is helpful to post the kernel number as well.
