[Q] Install Windows from Recovery Disc
Ok so I will make this short. I got a computer with Windows 8 on it and I decided to dual boot it. When I did Ubuntu booted and I looked with Gparted to see if windows is still there and it said it was. I booted and than windows didn't boot at all. I went back into Ubuntu to check and it said that the partition was empty. I have a recovery image in a hard drive and a Recovery disc, plus a product key. I refuse to spend the money on a Windows 8 install disc because I already bought a copy, I have a key for it. I tried the windows installer thing that is supposed to give me an iso to use but it says my product key can not be used for it. I can get the recovery disc to boot and I tried re-installing from an image file but it doesn't see windows so I can't restore it.
