  • Hi.. Download Linux Mint or ubuntu ISO file from internet. Use NERO to burn cd and install from boot cd.. Take care while formatting your hard disk using Linux OS.. It may create problem while again installing Windows Vista or Lower Version.. For win7 no problem..

  • i would suggest downloading the iso of your preference and instead of burning it onto a cd place it on a usb drive. The usb drive will read faster and better than any cd plus you will not have to hear those weird noises that come from optical drives.
