Installing Linux over Windows from Windows
I have a laptop that doesn't have a cdrom drive, and it can't boot off the usb drive. I am trying to fix it for a friend who says it is terribly slow. Well, this is because it is an older laptop and some dork installed vista on it... which is far too much for the poor laptop. My friend wants me to install Ubuntu, but, since I can't boot off of anything, I am having difficulty. I can however still boot into Windows, so my question is: Is there any way to INSTALL Linux FROM Windows? I want to start an installer, partition and install Linux right over the windows installation. How can I go about doing this? Thanks for the reply!
