Which older version and variant ISO image should I use?

Which older version and variant of Debian Linux ISO image should I use?

I attempted to install two versions of Debian Linux Operating System
onto my older full tower computer.

First version, V8.5.0, Amd64, xfce, 32Bit.

Second version V7.11.0, i386, 32Bit.

When trying to install version V8.5.0:
After starting the graphical interface, the screen went black and a white lettered message indicated that the kernel (in the ISO image) could not be installed.
The kernel was incompatible with my computer's CPU.

When trying to install version V7.11.0:
About half way into the installation process, a white screen and red lettered message
indicated a portion of the kernel could not be installed onto my hard drive.

I am using an Intel (R) Pentium (R) 4 CPU, 3.00GHZ.
I'm using an ASUSTek Motherboard, type P4P800SE.

My question for you is which older version and variant (ISO image)
should I use to install onto my older computer?

Please give me the specific ISO image title.

Also, where can I download this ISO image from?

Thank You, Jefferyab6
