An older version of Ubuntu (10.10) was installed on my computer by someone apparently wanting to be funny, and it has turned into a complete nightmare for me. I have no interest, no wants, or desires to use Ubuntu, I am completely content with Windows 7. It was bad enough I lost a lot of my data and pictures, and work documents. But now I can't even reinstall windows to be able to get back to work. Here's what I know for sure.
1.) My Windows 7 Disc Works, have tried it in 3 other machines with no problem.
2.) My dvd drive is functioning, apparently it installed ubuntu, but just to be safe, I took it out and tried it in one other computer, and no problems.
3.) I changed my boot order to make the cd rom boot first.
4.) Ubuntu boots fine
5.) I put in the windows 7 disc and restart, and get no notification to press a key for setup or anything like that ever, it boots straight to ubuntu.
6.) I get no error messages.
7.) I use the manual f12 to select the cdrom drive, it hands in the post at cd/dvd....for a few seconds, then continues to boot to ubuntu.
I am in desperate need of this computer so any and all help would be appreciated..
