I have a Windows 8 laptop, that I cannot factory reset because of some error (it just won't do it. I've tried a lot of different things and the error persists). So I'd like to just wipe my HD and do a clean install of Ubuntu on this machine. I do not have a DVD-R or a Flash Drive to make a LiveCD/USB with at the moment.
I DO have access to the Internet, with a wired or wireless connection, and it is fairly fast, so Net Installs would be a possibility.
Can someone point me towards a decently simple-to-understand walkthrough of the process? And if not, do I have ANY other options here at all?
Keep in mind that I do not want to dual-boot, or keep Windows 8 in any form on this laptop. I want to completely wipe Windows 8 off my Hard Drive, and install Ubuntu instead.
Edit Thanks everyone for the answers, looks like I'm just going to go on ahead and buy an inexpensive USB Drive and just do it that way, after all.
I'm new to AskUbuntu so I am not sure if there is a way to mark this question as "asnwered" or "resolved".
