HOW TO INSTALL LINUX FROM A USB(WIN)

So you want to install a linux distro but dont have a CD kicking around? Try this method:
  1. Obtain the linux distro you want (they are free, chill)
  2. Obtain the Universal USB Installer (also free)
  3. Follow its instructions
  4. Restart your computer
  5. Before the windows icon comes up enter the set up
  6. Change the boot order so that USB Drive is first
Now go enjoy your superior OS.
NOTE: This does not delete linux unless you install it!!! You can do all those steps and your hard drive will NOT BE ALTERED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
