How to install Ubuntu Linux on Windows PC or Mac

by Harry Williams Manager

There are different ways to install the Linux operating system in a device. You can run it live on your computer, without installing and making any changes in the current system. If you want to try out Ubuntu Linux or want to check whether your system is compatible or not, then you can use this method. Another method is ‘run it installed.’ If your computer is compatible then you can install the OS in your device. Here is how to get Ubuntu running in your system.

Before you start the installation steps, you need to create an installer disc or drive. If you already have an Ubuntu installer disc or flash drive, insert it in your computer and start the installation steps.
