Boot Error on start up


So I am new to this site and I am wondering if anyone can help me on this. I have a issue I have Linux lubuntu 13.04 on a usb stick using unetbootin. Well the installation to the usb stick was a success I reboot the computer and I get this boot error when trying to go the usb think after going to the bios and selecting it. I have a sata driver with 164gb my motherboard is Intel with Intel graphics media accelerator 950 integrated with it. The motherboard was created back in 2004 it Intel Pentium 4 on it. The hard dive was created back in 2006. I tried booting into my other hard drives on the same computer with the same usb stick. I am just wondering if anyone could help it did come with windows vista home basic on it.

Few things might happened. The first that comes to mind is that your Processor doesnt suppor PAE which is now required by the kernel used in Ubuntu and in all its derivates.
Another thing that would be that you perhaps downloaded a 64 bit software and you really need the 32 bit. The hard drive you are using has nothing to do because you are actually booting from the USB.
Try to boot a different computer with this USB to see if it works.

Good luck to you.

You haven't answered what TroN-0074 said to you. He asked Try to boot a different computer with this USB to see if it works..
Have you done this? What is the output?

You also never said what the error stated, it may be helpful for someone who knows what error means.

Ok, Now tell me, have you installed linux on your machine or you boot from USB every time?
You said
"I get this boot error when trying to go the usb think after going to the bios and selecting it"

If you are booting from USB every time, are you using quick boot menu to boot from it?
