This question already has an answer here:
I'm a complete newbie to this, so I'm going to need a full walkthrough with as little jargon as possible. Short story: I bought a used laptop that's in great shape off ebay. Dell Latitude, 16 gb ram, 128 gb ssd, i7-5600u core. Bit old, good heart. However, it has no os, just the bios. How can I get Ubuntu on here with as little fuss as possible? I have only worked with Windows vista, 8, and 10, plus chrome os and I've never had to install an is before. I have access to computers running on chrome os and Windows 10, plus mysterious hard drives my dad left when he died. I also have some flash drives in varying states of functionality, and HDMI cables that were being used to connect my previous laptop to the tv because the screen broke but all else was fine. My dad also left a whole drawer of mysterious cables I don't know the names of. Hope this is enough info, tell me if in my ignorance I left something out. Thanks in advance!
