Today, we are going to discuss how to install Linux from Windows. A while ago, I did the opposite, switching from Linux to Windows. Now, let’s dive into the process of installing Linux from Windows.
Firstly, you need to download the Linux ISO file. You can search for it on YouTube, Google, or any other platform. Choose the version that suits your needs. Once downloaded, we proceed to download the USB creator. This tool will help us create a bootable USB drive. Install and launch the USB creator.
After downloading everything, we can close all the programs. Connect your USB drive and select it in the USB creator. Choose the ISO file, which, for me, is located on my desktop. Format the USB drive as FAT32 and click on the lightning icon. Once finished, your USB drive should be ready.
Now, shut down your computer and restart it with the USB drive connected. The key to access the BIOS may vary (e.g., delete key, escape key, F2, F12, or F10). Access the BIOS and navigate to the boot or BIOS tab. Set your USB drive as the first boot option. Save and exit, allowing your PC to restart automatically, booting from the USB drive.
Once the installation tool launches in your preferred language, you can customize it according to your needs. You have the option to either delete Windows and install Linux or install Linux alongside Windows, managing the partition sizes. Select the « Something else » option if you want to do something different.
After selecting the appropriate disk or USB drive, continue the installation process. Once finished, your desktop will resemble the approximate appearance shown in the video. If you choose a different Linux distribution, the display may vary. When you restart your PC, if you installed Linux instead of Windows, it will boot directly into Linux. If you chose to have both, you will be prompted to choose between Ubuntu and Windows.
The initial screen may seem intimidating, but it is quite straightforward. In the first option, you will see Ubuntu, and in the last option, Windows. It’s as simple as that.
