Re: Any way of getting back windows?
BY this , do you mean that the PC came with Windows pre-installed and this CD came with it?
Yeah its the one i got with it so its definitely legal alright.
In nearly all cases, CDs that are included with PC that come with Windows preinstalled are only able to boot the CD into a recovery mode -- from which a factory reset can be done using the Windows image file stored in a Recovery partition on the drive. IF you erased that partition, and this is a recovery CD, then you have no Windows install media to use to restore it.
Also, Windows can't read Linux filesystems, so it's likely the Windows installer will not be able to reformat the drive in any way.
You need to use GParted to shrink the Linux filesystem to make room for Windows.
