How to Install Ubuntu on a Z83-F Fanless Mini PC

I originally created this tutorial because I wanted to install Ubuntu on to an Mini PC. Most Mini PC’s comes with Windows 10 already installed.

So I wanted to show you how to flush Windows 10 out of your PC and install Ubuntu.

This process applies to any PC with Windows 10 Installed, and to proof that it is possible to easily delete Windows 10 from the Ubuntu installer and replace it with Ubuntu.

Here is what we have to do :

A. First of all, back up your data! Make sure to backup your documents (and other important files, such as videos, music, and so forth).

B. Create a bootable Ubuntu USB installation. Here I installed the 12.04 version but the same applies to the latest version of Ubuntu

C. Boot from the Ubuntu installation USB. Here is a video tutorial that will help.

Choose Install Ubuntu. Follow the installation process …

Select your keyboard Layout

Normal Installation

Here select Erase disk and install Ubuntu. this option will delete Windows 10 and install Ubuntu.

Continue to confirm.

Select your timezone

Here enter your login information

Done!! that simple.
