If your laptop can boot from a network, then that is an option. Otherwise, you have to remove the drive from the laptop, connect it to another computer somehow, and then try to install Linux, which has some issues with it. Your configuration might be different from what it would be had it been installed on that laptop, and while it can be fixed, it'd take a little doing.
