Default Ubuntu install on Dell Inspiron Mini10 - 10-11-2016, 08:19 AM

Using Unetbutin with Ubuntu 12.04 to produce an usb stick to boot a Dell Mini10 with the intention of ditching the Windows 7 which is to slow to be of any use.
However when attempting to install I get the message that x86-64 CPU is required whereas it detects i686 CPU.

How can I get a linux OS on this hopeless machine?

The Mini 10 (1010) has a 32-bit-only processor. You'll need to find a 32-bit Linux distro.
