Linux is very stable, in terms of the distro " Ubuntu " which I recommend. However what we do after that I would have to re reserch. I'm surprised tthat your recovery is not working.

you don't need to put iit over windows, you need to go to http://www.ubuntu.com/ and follow the steps to make a live CD ( downloading ISO and then burning thaat to a CD ) but there is a proper way to do it.

That's where your supposed to be, but it seems to be extremely delayed.
