Re: Deleted windows partition accidentally? anyway to recover?
If you completely overwrote Windows, while it may be possible to get the filesystem back, some of it will have been destroyed due to the overwrite; so I seriously doubt you can get it back in working order.
If you're not sure if Windows is still there, open a terminal and enter "sudo fdisk -lu" (lowercase L, not a one). That will list out the partitions on the drive.
IF you can't restore it, an alternative is to contact the notebook supplier and see if they will sell you "full restore media". That will be a LOT cheaper than going out and buying a full retail copy of MS Windows.
Ubuntu 16.10 Mate, Mint 18 Mate; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
