    How to install UBUNTU onto a laptop without Bootable USB or DVD drive

    I want to install Ubuntu desktop 16.04 onto a low end laptop that I bought with WIN 10 pre-installed. I would like to remove WIN 10.

    The laptop BIOS does not offer me a boot from USB port and the laptop has no DVD drive.

    What other options exist that would allow me to install UBUNTU onto this laptop?

    Thanks Pros!

    I found this experience via Google. Give it a try . . .

    'Installing Linux on a Epik Model (ELL1401
    simple Solution, Boot into the Bios via the ESC key before windows Boots, OK? Select the Boot order and change boot order to UEFI to be listed first, OK Now suddenly when you do this there may pop up another option to boot UEFI and that may be the one you list first as be the case with My Epik (ELL1401) OK? use Rufus to make your USB Live Linux, OK as it will take most newer linux version that have UEFI support and install it for you, OK? In some cases Rufus may need online access to acquire other additional features to install on the flash drive, OK. I am going to keep this as short and sweet as I know how, OK? After you are able to boot into your flash drive, whether to just try a Live Linux or install it, you will need to reboot your computer and before any OS tries to load you need to get back into the Bios via pressing the ESC key and change your bios boot sequence back to the way it originally was OK? Or you will get stuck with a black screen with bright yellow letters pondering what the hell to do next brain fart mode. I have installed Linux Feren OS on a flash Drive and I will wait to first find a way to back up my Windows 10 OS as an image onto a flash drive but Hiren's Boot CD installed on a Flash Drive is said to not be able to work in UEFI mode as it is in a different format according the the Epik Learning laptop Technician. So I hope that this will work for you friend and I am a true believer that asking the right questions will attain the right answers without any philosophical mumbo jumbo1'
