    Thread moved to "Other OS/Distro Talk"

    The words that normally come before a question mark have disappeared.

    dependong on your laptop press ctrl+f11 or press f8 to a get a menu. How you do that or if it is an option depends on your laptop and what you have done.

    if not then restore disks if you have them, or the windows disk if you have it.

    If you have none of them then happy ubuntuing

    No, I had a USB, had the LiveCD on it, installed Ubuntu, removed W7S (Windows 7)
    and, boom. There you go.
