Help Installing Linux Ubuntu.. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!!
Hello, I currently have Windows XP and was having some problems with viruses so i wiped my hard drive. Well to make a long story short i can't log in due to a validation process problem. Windows asks me if i would like to validate. If i click no then it goes back to log in screen. so i tried to click yes to no avail. It still returned me to the log in screen. I'm fed up with windows and would like to install Linux Ubuntu. I have done quite a bit of research into DOS and CMD. I just can't find a straight answer. I can't log on to Windows so i can't run an Ubuntu installation disk. Is there anyway that i can install Ubuntu without having to log on? I do not want to Dual-Boot i'm fine with wiping my entire computer and starting over. I need everything i need to know. i have the Ubuntu .iso file already downloaded on another computer so i have easy access to that. I need any help i can get and a detailed response please. i need to know whether to place the .iso file on a CD or USB. Pretty much walk me through the WHOLE process. THANKS!
