Perfect. So i just click on the big green "Free Download" button?

I have tried booting from a memory stick but it won't let me. I don't see the option in the boot menu. Am i doing it right?

It looks like I have to purchase that software you gave me the URL to. Is there anything else that is a free utility?

The only free way is with Ubuntu:

I've never used that procedure before & it looks like a long process but at least it is free. I think I'd spend a few dollars & purchase the software if it were me... hope this helps.
