I can not install any Linux desktop


Hello,

I'm trying to install Linux computer brand Positive
MS-7267 see 4.5 (945GCM5 v2)
Intel Celeron 420 1.6 GHz
2GB DDR2 memory
80GB HD

I believe he was previously with Windows 7 installed (but the original factory is Vista Starter)

I used the KillDisk for formatting, and overwrite zeros, and apparently it was all OK.

When trying to install Elementary OS (DVD) or Ubuntu (another DVD), appears the keyboard and the doll:

but later it goes to black screen with a list of errors.

List errors when trying to install Ubuntu:

Too tried the Mageia (DVD)

The following installation screen appears: http://imgur.com/KaAyBeW

I tried to add some parameters both in Mageia as The Elemetary and ubuntu (after pressing F6), as
acpi = off noapic nolapic nodma PNPBIOS nomodeset irqpoll xdriver = vesa resolution = 1024x768 and nothing, changed nothing

In Mageia, when I click install linux kernel appears the load popup and always goes to 100%, but then just goes black screen passes 10, 20 minutes and not change anything

Selecting Mageia hardware detection option appears the information below:

In the bios setup already disable IOAPIC, checked if the vga is 8mb and TBM does not change anything:
screens is set as:

I thank those who can help

Hi...

Welcome to the forum

It may sound obvious but did you check your DVD's (including the md5) to make sure there weren't any burn errors? Did the system work fine under Windows?

Also, to start ruling out any hardware issues, you might want to check your memory using Memtest86+. Take a look at the motherboard. Are there any bad caps or anything else that looks like it may be a problem?

Regards...

there is no way that windows7 came installed on that old machine

Windows XP service pack 2 YES

supposedly that Celeron chip is 64 bit ???

but with only 2 gig of ram ad a 80 gig drive from about the year 2002


try installing the 32 bit linux Mint LTS( long term support) 13
support ends in 2017

and install the LIGHT WEIGHT desktop XFCE

Boot to memtest and run it a few days.

While 32-bit Linux with a lightweight desktop environment like Xfce will run on that, a system that old I wouldn't be suprised to see major hardware failures. Not that I'm trying to discourage you here.
