Dude...you're making this overly complicated. Yes...just google Ubuntu download...better yet heres the link..... http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop Download it and save it to where ever, use Rufus http://rufus.akeo.ie/ ...this will create a bootable USB. I prefer the USB over a DVD for the pure speed...USB is faster than a DVD. Then when you have a bootable USB, restart the computer and at post beep start pressing F12 key. This will bring up the boot menu...it bypass's having to change the boot order in the BIOS, a real nice feature. Then with Ubuntu open and printer on, add printer and follow prompts and print test page. It's that easy.
