comment How To safely uninstall Ubuntu and restore Windows 8?
yes, as long as you use it in an UEFI-mode session. (if you are in a Legacy session but need an UEFI session, the tool will warn you anyway).

comment How can I install Windows after I've installed Ubuntu?
Jan-Philip, fyi the PPA has been fixed and is now available for all supported versions of Ubuntu. So you do not need this hack any more. see the Ubuntu community page about Boot-Repair.

yes, I plan to create a 14.04 version of it, with up-to-date packages of the Boot-Repair utility. The 13.10 ISO is obsolete because it contains obsolete packages of the Boot-Repair utility.

I guess it was Linux-Secure-Remix. The 13.10 version is obsolete, so I have removed it from the download page. I will try to create a new ISO asap.

ok thx. fyi ubuntu-rescue-remix is abandoned since 2012, so its Boot-Repair packages are obsolete.

FYI, there is only 1 flavor of Boot-Repair-Disk (the link you have posted), in 32 or 64bit. Probably you are referring to old versions of the ISO, but they come with old versions of the Boot-Repair utility, so I do not recommend to use them.
