Step 1: Create a live USB/disk of Ubuntu

Step 2: Make a partition where Ubuntu will be installed

            Lets assuming you have a fresh system, first, we need to make a partition to install    Linux(Ubuntu 19.04).

          If you have just one partition like this, you need to make some free space out of it for Linux(Ubuntu    19.04). If you have several partitions of considerable size, use any of them except C drive because it may erase the data.
