I'm thinking about replacing my actual OS (Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit) with the latest version of Ubuntu, but i'm totally new with this "switching OS" thing. What steps should i follow to correctly replace Windows with Ubuntu? I'm using a Samsung laptop, model 305V5A S02.
You should definitely become familiar with the use of terminal and the work environment before switching from Ubuntu.If you are ready with that part and are new on switching OS (operating system,not SO) you can follow these steps :
1) Make a bootable USB or CD,this may help create a bootable ubuntu USB stick
2)Run the setup, in which How to replace Windows with Ubuntu may help.
And dont forget to take a backup of all important data.
I would recommend you to use virtual machine like
vmware and install
ubuntu and learn the commands if you are new to linux because it is difficult for first time users.
but if you have no difficulty using ubuntu , just go to ubuntu official website and download the
iso file and put it in a cd using
boot the computer with that cd.
all other doubts will be cleared by google.
