Same way for me, tried lot of distros for this old machine. It has a Pentium M inside so U can try to boot with the forcepae, but it's so slow... I use it for the moment with a debian 8 server + lxde, it's acceptable but it's impossible to listen to music and write a text in Abiword for example, which is frustating.
I'm downloading the gold edition of Vector to give it a try. Perhaps the installation process is more powerfull than the one that is embedded in the Live edition.... experience will tell us
I'll reinstall the light edition if it does'nt work and give here a feedback
