I am fine with that. Do you mean I should put in the usb stick, boot in the live mode, and it will give me an option to wipe it all away?

That really had set my hopes high ;-) I could install the drivers in command line mode and the driver was installed successfully. However, the black screen issue was still present (The laptop screen doesn't seem to be lit at all), for which I had to put nomodeset in grub to boot. but once the system boots up, it says its running in low graphics & I'll have to reconfigure the graphics, and somehow I can't go past that screen. Weird. Would you want any screenshot/video?

Brightness is still an issue, and without nomodeset I can't boot (I get a blank black screen) and that link above, One of the answers is already about it; I have tried it but it didn't work, so.. :-/

Brightness is not a problem as of now. getting the drivers to work is. Did you see that image I posted above?

Surprisingly, I do get till the point where I am given this wizard, but then the wizard doesn't display any text. What I see is this: i.imgur.com/vVIPz.png

So if we don't use nomodeset then how else will that blank screen issue is resolved?

I tried reinstalling it, and then received errors during boot that your system is running in low graphic mode. I repaired and switched back to the default version to make it work.
