Ubuntu: This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU but detected an i686 CPU when installing on netbook with 32bit image [closed]


I'm trying to install Ubuntu on my Samsung N130 and I'm having some trouble.

Exact error message is

This kernel requires an x86-64 cpu, but only detected an i686 CPU. Unable to boot - please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU.   

The netbook has Intel Atom CPU N270 and I used Universal-USB-Installer to boot from USB

I downloaded 13.10 desktop ubuntu 32bit got that error message.

So I downloaded 13.04 desktop ubuntu 32bit and got that message again. I'm 100% sure I downloaded 32bit

I searched but there are only help for running it on virtual machine or suggesting using 32 bit Ubuntu. Note: All downloaded from http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop and I chose 32 bit for both.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


I forgot to select the format option on the Ubuntu Ubiquity Installer (UUI). So it left some of the x64 from earlier installation.
