I have bought a new laptop specifically without Windows, which has only DOS.
I understand how to prioritize the boot order in BIOS but in doing that, my understanding is that the OS on the DVD is only installed into the Memory. Correct me if I'm wrong. I want the OS on the DVD installed onto the Hard Drive.
The question "How do I install Ubuntu?" refers to creating a partition in the Hard Drive to share with Windows. I don't want Windows. My computer does have DOS which I now realize needs to be partitioned if I want to keep it.
The installation was simple. Ubuntu gave the option of "Trying" (leaving in the memory) or "Installing" (installing onto the Hard Drive) and then gave the option of leaving the existing FreeDOS (DOS & Ubuntu) or removing it (Ubuntu only)
