For the past few days I've been trying to install (or even get it running) Pear Linux 6 on my Gateway W340UI that I recently purchased.

I've tried using CD's & get the same result.
I used UNetBootin to put this on a flash drive & it always gets stuck when trying to load the operating system.
But it boots to the UNetBootin Loading Screen.

Anyone able to help me figure out why? I've tried so many different things, but I'm open to anything else you can offer. c:

This laptop is for my mum, so all the help is worthwhile.

Did you check the info hash numbers?

For pearlinux-6-x64.iso

And I think for the 32 bit version its

And my apologies if you already checked them out.

To err is Human. To blame it on someone else is even more Human.

I don't know what you mean by Info Hash Numbers, sorry.
Could you explain them for me?

Specifically I was referring to the MD5 checksum. And in all honesty it is beyond my capability to explain it in my own words. So I'll leave it to the experts. The webpage explains the process to check it for all operating systems. A tl;dr, but very instructive. I am bringing the whole subject up because every time I had an issue installing any flavour of Linux this is one of the first things they ask about.

ETA: The number above for the x86 version is wrong. It is
