This question already has an answer here:
I recently bought a new laptop computer and have been unable to install Ubuntu alongside the Windows 8 operating system. I used to be able to install Ubuntu alongside a Windows OS but with Windows 8 that's no longer possible or too difficult for me to master. I don't really need Windows so I just want to wipe the disk and do a clean install of Ubuntu. What I want to know is if this is easy - as it used to be - or is it just as complicated as installing Ubuntu alongside Windows 8. Thanks for your replies.
