    Re: Install Ubuntu over old Fedora 25 version

    To install a system, such as you want to do, you need an *.iso file. You would create a DVD image of the iso or use a dd command to move the ISO to a flashdrive. Boot from one or the other device, and be careful how you setup partitions. You may be able to reformat and to reuse partitions.

    If Fedora 25 is the only OS and you already have Ubuntu on DVD, then you just install from the DVD wiping the Fedora 25 disk. Simple. Make sure you have backed up all the data on an external hard-drive that you want to keep, if any was stored on the Fedora 25 disk before replacing with Ubuntu.
