I checked if this is a PAE issue ... and yes, it is.
Forcepae makes the installer work, but later on, during installation, it
refuses to manage the [PAE] kernel. I tested, and it works in a computer
with CPU with a built-in PAE flag. And the trusty mini.iso can install
in the same computer, so this is a regression.
I mark it as a critical bug, because it is critical for computers with
Pentium M and Celeron M computers, that have PAE capability but lack PAE
flag. But yes, I know, that it does not affect computers with processors
that display a PAE flag. I have even tested that is works for such a
If you have a computer with a Pentium M or Celeron M CPU, please click
