Hi sindhu9x,

 

Dual OSs can be a little tricky if you're unfamiliar with partitioning a harddrive. But if you are or would like to be, we do have a similar post about having both win 8 and win 7 on a laptop. Please review this link for a general idea and similar steps.  I highly recommend creating a recovery media for your current harddrive setup before attempting to partition the harddrive and installing a new OS. Also know, that laptops can be far more limiting in fuctionality than desktops, and to research the OS requirements for linux/ubuntu beforea attempting the process. 

 

I hope this is helpful! 

Jesyka 🙂

this part is very tricy, i know how to partition drives, but is his particular model is eligible for that?

Hi

 

I suggest a "Live" version and then decide from there.

Hi

 

A "Live" version is a CD/DvD/USB version that boots and runs from your RAM area and does not install, or attempt to install, until you click on it.  Linux Mint is also possible.

 

The version is a little slow, but enables you to find out if anything needs extra drivers or configuration.

 

https://www.ubuntu.com/download/alternative-downloads

https://linuxmint.com/download.php

https://distrowatch.com/

 

So your Hard Disk is left intact until you commit to an install, knowing you can find any missing drivers.

 

There are lots of choices, download via torrent or Net install or Use Virtual box.
