I have no Ubuntu experience, I did install Ubuntu 12:10 recently cause I have read and overheard that Ubuntu could fix my Windows 7 64-bit re-installation. This is my last recourse. I have tried a few things already with windows with no success.
- I have a Dell Desktop which came with NO Full Windows 7 Home 64-bit disk. Dell provides users with what they call a "re-Installation Disk of the OS already installed in your computer original HDD".
- I also made "Rescue Disks #1 and #2" as per their suggestion.
- I downloads an ISO image of the windows 7 version i own. I also have the key code of my Windows activation with Microsoft
I have tried to re-install with the Dell Data Safe, I tried reinstalling following detailed instructions both from Seven Forums community as well as Microsoft Forums.
Aside from the SSD which i had the Win OS installed and now also has Ubuntu 12:10 I also own another 7 HDDs of different sizes and Brands.
I had the OS installed in more than just the SSD, in fact of all 8 disks only one boots Windows although after bypassing a boot error message.
All I want to do know is to recover (or reinstall) Win on the SSD
So my last 2 recourses left for me (ao so i think) are. a. Use ubuntu to recover (if possible) and b. use the files still existent on the Recovery partition on the HDD that still boots to make a clean copy of a booting Windows 7 on the SSD/
Could anyone help me with my situation?
Thank you kindly.
