i would think that you would have to use the usb port. Either an external cd drive or you can boot off of a thumb drive, though i don't know how.

I can't use USB or Any other device which conects to the USB.
Becouse the leptop support booting only from USB 1.1 (and dose not boot if i have USB 2.2 plug in).
I must install the LINUX from the hard disk.

please help me

Try the WUBI Ubuntu installer....
Installs Ubuntu just like a program in Windows (uninstallable through Add/Remove Programs) and CAN be made into a regular hard drive install.....

No You can't get rid of windows. Wubi is just an application that lets you install ubuntu into a windows directory. Windows has to be there.
