It's fairly simple to Install on your own.

Go to https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop and download Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS

also download Yumi Multiboot https://www.pendrivelinux.com/downloads/YUMI/YUMI-2.0.5.4.exe

Plugin a 8GB+ usb stick and run Yumi, select that you want to install the Linux iso and it will tell you all the data on the stick will get wiped.

Let it run, after it's done reboot your computer and boot from the usb stick. It will boot into ubuntu and from there you can install it on your hard drive.

If you run into some parts your don't understand, there are plenty of tutorials on Youtube.

Before wiping your whole W10 off your system I would recommend to boot your Linux distro from a thumbdrive first to ensure all your hardware is working/recognized. Wifi and stuff like Bluetooth might not always work straight away. Sometimes switching to a different distribution will help otherwise you need to install the appropriate drivers. Good luck!

I sure hope you pay more than just some beers to whomever helps you. If you can't do this yourself, $20/hour would be fair, in my opinion. It will take more than a couple of hours, if done correctly. Good luck!
I am sooooo very sorry if you can't understand or appreciate my sarcastic facetiousness.

Don't want to sound like a negative asshole but if you need help to install Linux than it may not be the best OS for you.

I agree.

Exactly, TBH I think he would be better going for Windows 7 Ultimate, its free and plenty of info re downloading and installing on the web.
