My Toshiba Satellite L300D - 040019 has BIOS Version 1.4. The CPU is an AMD Athlon X2 dual-core. 2 Gigs RAM and the Hard Drive is 320GB 7200RPM spindle speed, with no OS.
The Toshiba website has a BIOS update to V1.8, but requires Windows to install it.
Can I install Ubuntu now, or do I have to wait until I can acquire a Windows OS and upgrade the BIOS?
