Title: Non pae kernel required
Post by: lwfitz on April 25, 2013, 05:20:53 AM
I guess the title says it all. When I boot to the new 32 bit live disk I  receive this error (failsafe mode)

Code: [Select]
This kernel requires the following features not present on the CPU:
pae

Unable to boot - please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU.

Im attempting to install on an old HP pavilion ze4900 (http://archive.laptopmag.com/Review/HP-Pavilion-ze4900.htm?page=0)

I can only build for PAE extensions CPU's ...   These were first introduced in 1995 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physical_Address_Extension)

How old is this machine?  I am shocked that it is not PAE capable

Its a Celeron M CPU and the machine was originally shipped with XP. I was quite surprised also.
That bug is interesting. So if I read it right its not actually a kernel/cpu issue its a syslinux issue. Ill mess with this tonight and see what I can come up with. Thanks VastOne
