I currently have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Let me tell you my story real quick. I first installed Ubuntu on my laptop to save my corrupted OS and it worked. I ended up loving Ubuntu because how how fast it was! After maybe a week or so I let Ubuntu get the best of me and I figure id install it on my Desktop and have it 'replace' Windows 8. Now my desktop was a duel-boot with Windows 8 and Windows 7. Most of you might know why I would want Windows 8 gone! Anyways I had no real worries about keeping my files because I have everything backed up all the time, or i try to anyways. I booted up Windows 8 and installed Ubuntu via CD. When Ubuntu asked to be booted on the side or replace Windows 8...this is where I made the mistake...I had Ubuntu replace Windows 8 and Ubuntu completely wiped both Operating Systems on my Desktop!? I was shocked but not worried because again my files are backed up...however my OS was not..
So it's been a month now with Ubuntu on my desktop and I really don't like it on my desktop, it's fine on my laptop. I love Ubuntu on my laptop. Just not on my Desktop. Anyways I am installing Windows 7 again from the web (yeah i know a bit sketchy but all i can do is hope.) any advice on how to go about this?
From what i've read Windows will replace everything and I'm okay with that because all files I need are backed up. What I'm asking is should i burn it to a disk or can I use a Flash Drive to install Windows 7?
