I need to install Ubuntu single boot on a Sony Vaio SVS1511A4E laptop, which specs are:


The Bios is H20 and there is Nvidia card on it, (plus I use a SSD drive Samsung 840 instead of the original drive if it has any importance to be mentioned) so what is the best procedure to install Ubuntu on it, and which version is the best (from 12.04 to latest) ? I prefer stability and efficiency of power management (Nvidia card) over functionalities.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thank you very much.

create bootable USB Stick as shown here ubuntu.com/download/desktop/create-a-usb-stick-on-windows, or make DVD as shown here ubuntu.com/download/desktop/burn-a-dvd-on-windows and install it ,for installing instructions use ubuntu.com/download/desktop/install-desktop-long-term-support, this is for installing ubuntu 12.04 LTS, search before asking . Graphic card does not change your installing procedure , if you will any situation then ask about it here . –  Sushantp606 Dec 1 '13 at 5:37
