I tested the Ubuntu Vivid daily 32-bit mini.iso (dated feb 9) in my IBM Thinkpad T42 with Pentium M, and it works for me too with this double boot option.

I clicked tab to get to the boot line.

I edited the boot line from

> linux vga=788 initrd=initrd.gz -- quiet


> linux vga=788 initrd=initrd.gz forcepae -- quiet forcepae

and the installation of a minimal text system worked for me.

Thank you very much for helping us to solve this problem, Chris :-)


Is this new usage of boot options general?

1. The entry before -- means that it will be used by the live system / the installer

2. The entry after -- means that it will be carried to and used by the installed system
