i dont know much about linux but the most obvious way i can think of to get windows back would be to:

1. get the installation cd that you originally had with your computer
2. place it in the cd tray.
3. turn on your computer
4. follow the on screen commands to re-install windows.

That shoudl help you.

another option is to partition your hard drive. install windows on one and linux on the other...do linux AFTER you do windows though. Then you can boot to either or!

Yer, my mate just did that, he's now dual booting - it rocks.

I would also suggest 3 partitions

One for windows
One for linux
One for files

Use as little space as possible for windows so that you have the extra space for file and different linux boots. I suggest ubuntu

okay...you install an operating system that uses a COMPLETELY different File structure and though that it would not delete Windows? Did you do ANY research into Linux before you installed it? Please tell me you did...

Windows and Linux are NOT compatable...that is why they are not the same thing!

And I guess you will learn now to BACK up your hard drive before doing something like this from now on Pfft

AldarHawk it takes people three or four times to get things into thier heads. I've lost about 80 Gb of data all together. If only I'd backed up Frown

microsoft (windows) and linux are like fire and water u know....

i think u beter can order a Ubuntu cd. i never had any trouble with it and its probably one of the easiest linux distro's.

(p.s. have u already searched the website of your network card producer?)
