    One last thing to try is testdisk to see if any partition is recoverable
    My Grandfather said that most people who lack a sense of humour don't lack humour, they lack sense.

    Re: "Replace Fedora" replaced everything

    I've never run Win 8, and don't intend to. I do, however, have one of my machines in a dual boot with Win 7 simply so I can game with games I have that don't run on Linux and I won't be bothered to use Wine. That's all it's for. I don't boot into the Win 7 portion for anything else.

    As pointed out above, running Win in a virtual machine is awesome, at least Win 7. While it's not good enough for gaming, it's more than good enough for the standard apps most people tend to run in Windows, like Quicken, MS Office, etc. And the bonus is that Windows isn't running your PC. It's a win-win situation.

    I guess Ubuntu and I had a miscommunication.
    It was just a headache, but I've been able to get most of my hardware working so far.

    I tried testdisk and it confirmed that everything had been wiped.
