Due to a series of unfortunate events regarding hard drive failure, and subsequent changing of settings in the BIOS of my Acer Aspire Laptop, which I am now locked out of, I'm currently unable to reinstall Windows on my Laptop, as I cannot access the main replacement hard drive, on which Windows 10 HAS to be installed. It won't install on any secondary drives, much to my chagrin. Paying to have it serviced in order to reset my BIOS to make it accessible once again, is unfortunately, not a viable option at this time. However, I decided to give Ubuntu a try, as I recalled having played around with it off a CD about 10 years back. Much to my delight, I found that it'll function on my Acer Aspire Laptop without installation, which I am currently attempting with Ubuntu 18.04, via the USB stick method. I'll keep everyone posted regarding my progress, or any lack, there of! CHEERS!
