    QuestionQuestion

    I have been running Ubuntu 14.04 32 bit for a while but was told that my computer could run a 64 bit OS. So I downloaded Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit for desktop iso and made a bootable usb using Ubuntu’s startup disk creator. I plugged it into the computer and tried to boot from the usb. When it tried to boot, this message showed up;
    Missing parameter in configuration file. Keyword: path
    After that these lines showed up and duplicated every few seconds;

    gfxboot.c32: not a COM32R image

    boot:

    Does this mean that I cannot run 64 bit Ubuntu? Also, I am using a Dell Inspiron 1525.

    maybe duplicate of this

    seems you have to “hit Tab, type in live and hit Enter.”

    if you want to know if your cpu can run x64 run lscpu inside a terminal and look for something like CPU op-mode(s): 32-bit, 64-bit 64bit is what you need

    or cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep -i model and search on web the model to see if it supports x64
