Re: Ubuntu wiped my drive?
It only did what YOU told it to do!
I accidentally hit the replace Windows with Ubuntu box,
It probably started out by reformatting the partition containing Windows -- which actually takes only a few seconds and was probably already finished when you panicked and shutdown the machine.
What version of Windows were you running?
Answer depends critically on what you have that you can use to restore the OS.
Did you make a set of recovery disks?
Did you leave the Recovery partition intact when you installed Ubuntu? Or did you erase that, first?
Do you have MS Windows full installation media?
