31213RE: Ubuntu 12.04 - "This kernel requires the following features..."
- Sep 20, 2013
It says right in the error message what is wrong. The CPU in that system does not have PAE, but the kernel is configured for a PAE capable CPU. The system could run Ubuntu if you had a kernel that ran on that CPU. PAE doesn't do you any good with less than 4 GB of RAM anyways.
This webpage has an ISO with the right kernel
Or so it says

Subject: [LINUX_Newbies] Ubuntu 12.04 - "This kernel requires the following features..."
I downloaded Ubuntu 12.04 to a CD and attempted to install it on my laptop but when I did, I get the message: This kernel requires the following features not present on the CPU: paeUnable to boot - Please use a kernel appropriate...So apparently this Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop is not able to run Ubuntu. I am willing to use another distro (Puppy?) as long as it will work with my wireless network and not require a lot of configuring.
