I am having difficulties getting Ubuntu installed on my laptop and I have tried a few different ways of going about this as suggested on the disc. They include a direct install, install within windows and install helper. None of these worked and I do not like or want Windows on my laptop. How can I get rid of Windows and get Ubuntu to install on my computer.
NOTE: Auto run does not work on this ;laptop for some reason and I am thinking that this may be part of the issue. Please help if you can. Thank you in advance.
