How to install Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver)Ubuntu is one of the most popular Linux distributions. The reason being is it is trying extremely hard to be the most user-friendly non-geek Linux operating system out there. As you will soon see shortly, the Ubuntu installation process is straightforward and simple to follow.
This article aims to guide you through the Ubuntu installation process with the beginner in mind. I will deliberately avoid lengthy explanations and much of the technical jargon
- 64bit architecture computer with hard drive free of personal non-recoverable data. This could be any spare, old, low profile desktop or laptop.
- Internet connection
- DVD burner with blank DVD medium or USB flash drive of minimum 2GB size
First, thing we need to do is to download bootable ISO image. Note, at the time of writing the official Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver has not been released yet. From this reason we will be using daily builds. Navigate your browser to the Official Ubuntu download page and download the 64-bit PC (AMD64) desktop image.
Create Bootable DVD or USB
Next, choose from which medium you wish to perform the Ubuntu installation. Most beginners will find using DVD as bootable medium a simpler method. If this is your case use your current operating system to burn the previously downloaded ISO image to blank DVD medium. There are no specific settings you need to choose while burning the ISO image just look for "Burn ISO image" image feature when using your burning software.
Given that you have already downloaded Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver ISO image, to create bootable Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic USB stick start by downloading UNetbootin. Depending on the version number, you will end up with a file eg. unetbootin-windows-657.exe.

Boot from USB or DVD
If you are a non-technical person then most likely this part of the Ubuntu installation process will be the hardest for you. Unfortunately, there is no single guide on how to boot from USB or DVD as there are many computers and manufactures out there which are yet to come to a decision on how to unify this process.
