•    Processor: 2 GHz dual-core
•    RAM: Minimum 2 GB
•    Hard drive space: At least 25 GB should be free
•    The computer must have a working DVD drive or USB port
2.    Create an Ubuntu installer disc or drive:
•    You can use a flash drive of at least 2GB and a DVD disc of standard 4.5 GB.
•    Insert the disc or drive into your computer.
•    And, put the Ubuntu ISO file into the flash drive or disc to create the installer.
If you’re using a DVD, then you need to burn the Ubuntu ISO file onto it. If you don’t know how to burn a CD, then it’s better to use a flash drive. Format the flash drive before sending the ISO file into it, use FAT32 file system in Windows and MS-DOS (FAT) in Mac while formatting.
How to download the Ubuntu Linux ISO file

1.    Open your computer’s web browser.
2.    Visit ‘www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop’.
3.    In the opened web page, you’ll see the different version of Ubuntu.
4.    Scroll down and find a version you want to install, the latest version is Ubuntu 18.10.
5.    Click the ‘Download’ button to select it.
6.    Scroll toward down and click on ‘Not now, take me to the download link.’
7.    Click on ‘Download now’ link.
Once the Ubuntu version is downloaded, send the ISO file to the blank DVD or USB drive to create the installer.
3.    Create a partition of hard drive:
Whether an operating system is installed in your computer or not, you can create a separate partition of your hard drive to install Ubuntu Linux. Make sure the partition you’re creating is at least of 5 GB, but recommended by Ubuntu is 25.
Now, you’re fully prepared to install the Ubuntu Linux operating system in your computer. The process of installing Ubuntu depends on the device you’re using.
