Hey everyone,

Is it possible to factory reset windows WITHOUT erasing Ubuntu? I currently dualboot Vista and 10.04

Thanks!

Probably not. OEM provided media usually restores the disk to the factory state after having wiped it clean.

No. Windows refuses to play nice with linux. A MS decision. They could if they wanted to, but that would effect their bottom line.
