I was faced with the blue screen of death on my Sony vaio laptop, which was running Windows 8.1. I tried everything I found online, went through every troubleshoot possible, including getting deep into CMD to try to resolve the issue. Nothing was working. So in a last ditch effort, I tried clearing my local hard drive. Little did I know I was going to be completely erasing my operating system (silly of me, I know) and now I'm faced with a black screen saying no operating system found whenever I start the laptop up. So, I would now like to install Linux on my laptop since it is free. How do I do this? I have access to a second computer, and a 32g usb drive. Any help is appreciated!
