Bug Description

Installing Xubuntu 14.04 non-PAE 32-bit fails with "An attempt to configure apt to install additional packages from the CD failed." when installing from a booted LiveUSB whose ISO file matched the MD5SUM value published. Wish to install to an ext4 partition sda2 (sda1 is Windows 8, installed to run until I can get any version 14.04 to run) with swapfile on sda3.
