I was using windows 7 home premium before. I received another pc with ubuntu and I like the program. I need this upgrade bad as the one Im using now is missing allot of its software and apps, and servers. Its also out dated, not supported or secure.

Does the system only have Ubuntu 11.04 on it and no other OS? Or is it a dual boot?

Thanks

If you are using an Ubuntu only machine you should be able to create a boot-able USB stick or CD for the version you want and boot from that.

There should be an option to replace the existing operating system.

Full instructions here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick

If you have any data on your PC you want to keep make sure you backup before installing Ubuntu fresh.

If you have more than one operating system installed provide more details as requested by actionparsnip so we can advise further.

Can you help with this problem?
