Re: Help, I (think) that I installed ubuntu over my windows 8 partitions
The (former) Windows partition(s) is/are gone. You might be able to restore the former partitions if you download and burn a CD from the free Minitool Partition Wizard Boot CD ISO file. That is a Windows filesystem partitioning tool which might be able to recover the former partitions.
Could I recover windows? Or at least recover the files I had on windows?
Ubuntu 15.04 Mate, Mint 17.1; MS Win 8.1, Win10 TP.
