So my lubuntu OS v. Willey 14.04 has had a melt down the initial cause was a rewrite of the chown file and has grown from there, I can currently only access the terminal or an unusable desktop, I need to know how to completely remove lubuntu using its terminal as I'm on a PC without deul boot. And than I need to know how to install mint rather via same terminal or via the ISO disk I have preburned, please make answer s vey simple this is my first Linux and I've had it only 3 days I do not own a flash drive and am on a relatively stable wifi network, my first language is English but I live in Mexico, so my region would be that. The PC I'm working with is a 64 bit Intel HP notebook 15" display with Blu-ray ROM and HDMI I'm using a b and g connection. Unfortunately I don't know any of my other specs besides that I have 2 TB ram
You don't need to remove
Lubuntu before installing
Linux Mint. The installer can do that for you.
Just boot from the
Linux Mint installation disk and start the installation of
If you get to the part where it asks whether or not you are sure that you want to overwrite the existing data on the disk, answer
yes. If the installer detects
Lubuntu and suggests that it can keep it and make your system dual-boot, you can select to remove it.
This will get rid of
Lubuntu and all of the other data on the disk as well. So make sure you have backed up everything you want to keep.
If your system doesn't boot from the disk, but instead always boots from the hard disk, you have to get into the boot menu of your laptop and change the boot order.
When you turn on on your laptop, it normally will tell you what key or key combination to press to get into the boot menu. It is often
F10, but could be any key or key combination.
