    how do I get back to windows 7

    I have just recently installed Ubuntu, it is giving me problems & I want to redownload it.
    But I can't do that on Ubuntu because it won't connect me to my wireless... Lol

    So I need to know how to get back to Windows 7? If anybody can please tell me how. I've got the newest version.

    Thanks all

    What kind of problems is wireless giving you? Run these commands in Terminal and tell me what you see, and I'll see if I can spot the wi-fi card:

    Hi ,
    if you want to get back to Windows it is your choice and I respect it, whilst I cannot help you with details the procedure is quite simple...

    Boot from Windows DVD and install.

    Thanks

    I've split my hard drive into 2. One half is Ubuntu & the other is windows 7... How do I switch to windows 7?
    That's the problem I am having. But if someone can get my wifi working, then I can redownload it here then burn to disk then put it back on. & hopefully it works

    So you can boot into Ubuntu but not into Windows; correct?

    Do you see the grub menu when you boot the computer giving you the option of either Ubuntu or Windows?

    From ubuntu terminal let's see the output of
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    which will show us if windows is still on the computer, which from your answers so far is not at all clear.
