So I'm really new to Ubuntu and I would like to replace my vista OS with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.(Or 15.04 if that would be easier)
My hard drive has 2 partitions with 2 different operating systems currently (vista and win 10). I don't know if this makes the process different.
My Vista is completely bare, I've uninstalled everything and deleted every file that is not needed to run, I'm not worried about losing anything on this side of the partition.
Essentially I want to delete vista and install Ubuntu as the new operating system (much like installing a new version of windows). I keep seeing the procedure as: Install as a new partition, delete operating system, then delete partition that said operating system was on". Is there any other way?
Also how advanced is this task? Can a beginner manage within the next week or will it take some reading?
