deleting windows 8 completely and installing linux

By Patriot19 ·
I have windows 8 on a lap top. Can I delete windows 8, change the boot order to dvd and install ubuntu?

I heard that secureboot software windows 8 has prevents you from deleting windows 8 and installing linux.

There is very little information about this on the web, and for some reason microsoft won't post my question in support when I ask about deleting windows 8.

You should be able to disable Secure Boot in the BIOS. Once disabled, you should be able to install any OS. Google "Replace Windows 8 with Ubuntu Secure Boot" for suggestions.
