Space Problem

Asked by Pytopiz

My Computer Is really messed up and my friend told me about Ubuntu and how it wipes out your harddrive and puts in a new one. But when i tried to install it a error came up telling me i needed so many MB to download/install. I clearly have enough space and i don't know what to do? Please help!!! Ohand my computer also says there is a critical virus thing and it keeps trying to find an antispy soft where but when it does that all that comes up on the internet is about::blank?

What did you download from where? an Ubuntu iso from:


If so you need to burn it to CD, then reboot your computer from that CD to install. Doing this will wipe any data on your existing drive, unless you install to a resized partition. Either way, back up anything important first.

I'm not understanding the problem. How are you trying to install, on a resized partition? using available free space? or do you want to completely blow windows off the drive?

Can you help with this problem?
