My computer is a Toshiba satellite 7675d-s7104 model, and it has no operating system on it.

Is it possible to just boot Ubuntu from a flash drive?

That is possible. There is no reason you should have an operating system preinstalled in order to try live media (like a live CD or a live flash drive).

Yes, you can do it with:

1. A USB stick that is at least 2 gb


2. A CD

To clarify, you need a computer on which to create the Live USB or burn the Live CD. But you can do that on any other computer! – thomasrutter Jan 17 '13 at 1:09
