Have you got a Linux LiveCD ?

Which Linux distribution are you trying to install (Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, etc.) ?

What is the intended result … to replace Vista, or a dual boot system ?

Could you give us some specs?

Also, could you please try to use correct English. It makes it easier for readers who don’t speak English too well.

if i was you mate id download unetbootin and the linux of your choice (linuxmint zorin ubuntu are good for new linux users )

make sure your laptop can boot from usb (f2 or f10 from startup)

if you need more help post spec of the hardware and what knowhow you have (with bios etc)

this quiz may help you choose a linux distro
