Learn How to Install Ubuntu Linux in 5 Minutes

A Tutorial: Ubuntu Linux is a completely free open-source operating system that has many useful features and abilities, and this guide will show you how to try this new OS without harming your Windows system, and it only takes five minutes to learn! This guide will show you how to: -Download and burn the Ubuntu image to CD -Shrink the Windows installation to make room for Ubuntu -Boot to the Ubuntu live CD and begin the installation process -A step-by-step description of what options to choose and when during the installation, including how to manually partition Ubuntu on your hard drive This guide was created for Windows Vista (using the disk manager to shrink Windows and make room for Linux) but should work with Windows XP as well as any version where you can shrink the partition through the control panel. This guide was designed for systems with a single hard disk, but may be used on a multiple hard-disk system with minor changes.

  6. bizarrebob says:

    When you’re creating the partition, i’m confused.. You mention you set it to 2000 because you have 1gb ram..

    the partition size has nothing to do with how much ram you have?

    Excellent tutorial for installing on a Vista/7 computer. I’d like to see you do the same on win2kPro and XP. Subbed!

  15. CrashDu49 says:

    WTF!! do not use Windows hard drive disk manager !! just use gparted because if you use windows hdd manager it can modify your hard drive tab and gparted will not detect your partition anymore because microsoft doesn’t know how to make a software without bugs !! so just insert your live cd and use gparted to make your partitions !!

  19. keteague says:

    That does it! I’m switching to Ubuntu! Ubuntu has to be the way to meet hot chicks! j/k

    The title for this video is misleading. You’re not going to get a full installation in 5 minutes. You could get a minimal installation, such as a base netinstall without any additional packages. The end result wouldn’t be of much use, but it could be, depending on your needs. Also, with a little clickity-click of the keyboard (a la aptitude), you could have some very useful tools.

    Great tutorial. Just need to watch it on another PC so I can follow it whilst installing Ubuntu on this one =P.

    Btw, if anyone asks why everyone (especially men) like Linux, do refer them to this youtube user =P. They will see.
