  • Linux Lite: 3.8 32bit

  • CPU: 3200+ AMD Sempron 1.8 GHz

  • MEMORY: 4Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Integrated ATI RADEON EXPRESS 200
I am trying to install Linux Lite 3.8 32-bit on a Compaq Presario SR1610NX (3200+ AMD Sempron 1.8 GHz, 80GBs storage, and Integrated ATI Radeon XPRESS 200, BIOS 3.33 8/17/05) I recently upgraded the 256MBs RAM to 4 GBs.

The current OS is Windows XP Home Edition, but after trying to install Linux Lite with a USB ( I used Rufus to create the bootable USB), I can't even load up XP anymore. I tried to recover XP, but that wouldn't work either. I don't want XP on it, though. I want Linux Lite. I used Rufus to create the bootable USB.

So here's the real problem. I start the Presario. I hit Esc for the blue boot menu and choose the option - Hard Drive Group - USB-HHD0: Lexar USB Flash. Then I choose Start Linux Lite 3.8 32-bit. After that, it takes me to a yellow screen with a feather on it, but that is as far as it will go. I tried just waiting to see if it would eventually load up, but it does not. I waited hours. Any ideas??

Also, I did look through the forum for similar problems. I saw one about a yellow feather screen, but it did not help me.

Hi! @srigsby118

Try pressing F1 or F2 / ALT-F1 or ALT-F2 on the frozen screen.
This should display the text boot screen and should have a mention on what the error is.
Repport back here with error/fail/panic lines.

Cheers!
