Hello - I lost my win10 os completely while attempting to do an alongside install of Ubuntu. I am going to try a fresh install of mint for 32bit on this pc, will drivers be included once i have my download on the flash drive? Or am I asking a too simplistic question and not providing enough info?
For starters, are you sure you lost Windows 10? Maybe we should take a look see to make sure, that is, if you still want it.
Let's make sure you are running a 32ibt pc. Just because it has a 32bit OS on it don't necessarily mean it is a 32bit CPU. This way you will get a little better security and be able to run Google Chrome.
"Drivers": For the most part you don't have to worry about this, unless you have certain Graphics Cards etc. Even then you should be able to just boot it up and install. If you can post up some of your specs, or the Make and Model of the pc we can take a look to foresee any issues. We can also get specs the next time you boot up linux. If you want to do that, just say the word and which distro you will use.
once i have my download on the flash drive?
You've done this before, so you know you don't download on the flash drive right? You download to the pc and then use one of the popular installers to create a bootable USB, LinuxLiveUSB "if you will"
