I have this problem which is really annoying and I want to reset my system and install clean Linux distribution to hopefully solve the problem.

So is it possible to install new distro while I am in already booted? I have heard that there is an option to install Ubuntu directly from Windows.

  • I don't know about installing directly from Windows, but why not just do the normal thing, create a bootable CD and boot and install from that? – Ray Andrews Feb 8 '15 at 5:17
