comment How to uninstall ubuntu and grub from pre-installed windows 8?
@TrailRider That was for windows 7 BIOS. I specifically said I do not have a recovery CD and I have preinstalled windows 8 (efi)

@ThomasW. I forgot to mention that at this time, I was looking for a way to use the Windows 8 Boot Manager to chainload ubuntu, not GRUB. The linked question also does not explain that very clearly - if not at all.

@ThomasW. I am afraid that my edited post does not apply to the now-changed linked duplicate. At the time of my edit (7 hours ago), the linked duplicate post was not about pre-installed Windows 8, but a solution to BIOS Windows 7. That is partially my fault. In addition, as I have once stated, I am new to linux, and am quite frankly a noob. I was looking for an easy step-by-step solution to this problem, because I cannot afford another laptop and the linked answers were involving things with terminal, and were pieces to fit together - things I am horrible at.

This was helpful, but may I ask - can I do the recovery disc with a flash drive? I am not currently at my house, and my laptop is a sleekbook - hence no CD/DVD drive. I will check later, but I would just like to know if you knew right now.
