The Kernel Problem
Hi, I tried to install one of linux OS on my labtop after wiping it clean and shortly after I clicked install, it states that I don't have the correct Kernel? I needed to re install an operating system so I decided to try linux after wiping it clean. What does this mean? This is a first for me.
What distribution+version of Linux are you trying to install, and what hardware is it going on (CPU, RAM, disc space, networking, etc)?

I bought the new 64 BIT 5 PACK set off ebay. 5 COMPLETE OPERATING SYSTEMS + CD. I tried to install the ubuntu, kubuntu, and the fedora operating system and had the same problem with each. Im not sure where it was trying to install all I know is that I put the cd in my labtop after erasing everything and the kernel message eventually came up. How do I find out?
My guess is that your system doesn't support a full 64-bit OS. You might check in the BIOS settings so see if there is something there. What is the CPU in your laptop (manufacturer and model # - your BIOS should be able to say, if you don't know).
