    I have just bought a Toshiba C840

    The problem is that I told the seller not to install ubuntu out of ignorance.
    Now I am stuck with a laptop with no operating system.

    Any idea how to install OS on the laptop.
    I don't have any CD, just flash drives (USB).

    I have 1 flash drive that comes with the laptop.
    It said that I don't need to install USB drive to use it.

    I think Ubuntu can be installed from USB.

    Thanks, but the thing is that I don't have any OS in this.
    All I get is an old BIOS screen pre installed from the factory.
