Pentium M 1.6Ghz
Entered forcepae at the end of the string and installed without any issues. That was just a few weeks ago but I boot the machine daily, no crashes, and I haven’t noticed anything else that seems like it is or could lead to a problem. I was clicking around the forums today and learned at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PAE that the forcepae parameter must be entered twice (e.g. “forcepae – forcepae”). I didn’t do that.
I haven’t saved anything or made any customization yet, so it’s no hardship for me to re-install, but I am curious if anyone knows or can make an educated guess why the installation succeeded? Shouldn’t it have failed?
