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 16.04 Mate, Mint 18 Mate; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
