I have Win 10 Enterprise Machine x64.

and I have Windows Server 2012 R2 Machine.

I am a very beginner to Linux OS/Administration.

Keeping in mind SQL Server on Linux I want to install Ubuntu Linux OS on above two machines.

Can anyone guide me on how to Install. Which ISO file should I use and how to run the ISO file.

enter image description here

But seriously I don't know how to install using this ISO file.

Regards, kindly understand my lack of knowledge.

    The server ISO doesn't contain the GUI (graphical user interface). – Ploni Mar 27 '17 at 10:43

    You burn the ISO to a CD (or make a bootable USB) and boot the computer to your CD/USB and install from there. – Ploni Mar 27 '17 at 10:44

    Have you considered using Virtual Box or vagrant, where Ubuntu may be considered a 'guest' OS running on a Windows 10 'host' ? – tomd Mar 27 '17 at 10:47

If you want to use Microsoft SQL Server you can't go with Linux MS-SQL which only runs on Windows or Windows Server. If you really want to use Linux then you need mysql or postgresql.

To get started with Linux specially with Ubuntu Server take a look at the Official Ubuntu Server Help Guide here https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide and if you have any other questions then please use the http://askubuntu.com instead of this forum.
