i'm having problems installing elementary os freya 32 bits, i have a really older laptop from a little cousin and want to install elementary, i'm using rufus to create the bootable usb and install it, but i'm stuck at elementary logo, and having some SQUASHFS errors, i have a hp laptop with elementary freya running just fine, but in this one nothing.

P.S. i know how to install linux based operative systems but still i'm not a linux daily user, so i'm not too familiar with troubleshooting methods or how to fix problems

    Can you copy over the error you're getting? And what are the specs on the laptop?

Did you check that the image on your USB drive is not corrupted?

You can either use Check disk for defects in the boot menu and/or you can verify that you can boot from this medium (Try without installing) works on another computer.

Check disc for defects

(You might want to check https://elementary.io/docs/installation#verify-your-download as well)

  • I checked the image in my computer an it's fine. Sep 29 '16 at 0:36
  • Did you check it in the laptop you want to use it?

  • I didn't check it on the laptop sorry, as i said on top, i don't know how to, my knowledge of linux is really basic. Sep 29 '16 at 23:01
  • You have to touch a key while booting and select the item highlighted from the boot menu, cf. screenshot.
