I have an old laptop running windows xp, I want to replace it with the latest version of ubuntu. The problem is that the laptop does not support boot from usb - I checked the BIOS but the option is not working, I tried http://www.pendrivelinux.com/testing-your-system-for-usb-boot-compatibility/ but with no luck.
I also tried burning the iso on a dvd but the burn process keeps failing.
What options do I have? Isn't it possible to install ubuntu somehow by downloading it and replacing it with the current OS?
