How to install windows 7 on Ubuntu 11.10 [Dell Xps 15]
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 18, 2011
So, my title pretty much says it all. I have no clue on how to install Windows 7 over Ubuntu, I only have an installation disc and it won't load it. Do I need to install a ISO mounter and run it that way or is there some other way i'm supposed to do this?
How to run Windows 7 partition as a VM in libvirt/Ubuntu/qemu?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 4, 2013
I need to use an existing windows 7 installation in a virtual machine from a libvirt host running Ubuntu 12.10.
Windows 7 installs on two partitions. There a 100MB boot partition and then the main partition for the installation.
If I boot the laptop (which dual boots), I can select Windows 7 and boot it just fine, or alternative Ubuntu.
If I select /dev/sda1 in the virtmanager (the gui version) as the source path I can see disk activity, but in the VM window the "booting from hard disk..." text never goes away.
If I select /dev/sda2 (where the windows installation resides (and which is not marked as bootable), I get a boot failure right away.
Here is what /var/log/syslog has:

How to reinstall Windows 7 on Asus Eee PC 1005PE Netbook with Ubuntu 11.10
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 9, 2012
when I had initially bought my Asus Eee PC 1005PE Netbook, Windows 7 was already pre-installed. No installation disc came with it.
After a year, I decided to install Ubuntu operating system - and unfortunately, did not keep the Windows partition. So, there is no Windows partition (NTFS) on my Netbook.
I have also upgraded my Ubuntu to Ubuntu 11.10, which is the current operating system running on this Netbook.
Now, I am considering to get back to Windows 7.
I know how to make a bootable USB from which I "could" boot, but what I do not know is which kind of Windows 7 I do need to have on this bootable USB device in order for my Ubuntu-Netbook to correctly boot from it.
I have tried Windows 7 Starter Edition, have created the bootable USB device containing the .ISO file -
further, I have set up the BIOS settings in a way to boot from the removable device first -
.. but it just would not boot from the USB device I do see that the Netbook is trying to boot from the r

Unfortunately i have been having a lot of frustrations with ubuntu and i just don't seem to get used to it. The netbook i got was already preinstalled with ubuntu and i need help trying to figure out how to install windows. Do you have to uninstall ubuntu first or does it get completely overwritten when windows is installed? Also netbooks do not contain a cd drive so how would you install windows? Im not much of a computer person so if you could write out step by step that would be great Thank You in advanced for the help.
How to remove Windows 8 entirely and install Ubuntu 12.10 solely.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 22, 2013
I have a Windows 8 laptop and I first created a Ubuntu 12.10 DVD to test it out. I liked it so much that I installed it alongside Windows 8. Can someone help me with how I can basically remove Windows 8 entirely and leave Ubuntu 12.10 running solely on the laptop? Do I have to reinstalled Ubuntu 12.10 or is there another way? Thanks!
How to Run steam games installed in windows on Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 24, 2009
I googled around and found no solutions for running my steam games which are installed in my windows partition in Ubuntu, basically I wanted to share the same installation between linux and windows. It was surprising how simple it actually is, so I'm posting about it here in case someone is searching with no results, and doesn't have enough HDD to just reinstall the same game in his Ubuntu partition.
1- Boot in windows, install steam and install your games
2- Boot into Linux, and install steam.
3- Go to C:\Program Files or wherever you installed your windows steam, right click on your steam folder and click "Make link"
4- Cut and paste the "Link to Steam" file into ~./wine/drive_c/Program\ Files
5- Delete your Linux steam folder, rename "Link to Steam" to "Steam".
Now just run steam via wine, I tested it with my TF2 installation, and it worked fine. (Don't forget the -dxlevel 81 launch option for TF2)
How do I install Windows 7 from ubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 29, 2013
I will try to make this short as possible
Lately I have realised that installing only ubuntu was and removing windows was a huge mistake mainly due to gaming purposes . so is there a way that I can remove ubuntu and install windows or even keeping ubuntu because it don`t really mater as far as I have windows on my laptop. I have try`d booting windows 7 from a usb several times using UNetbootin but it don`t really work as I had problems while formatting it from fat32 to NTFS and I have also try`d installing windows xp from CD using Nero Linux but that was a failure to and I ended up wasting 2 of my CDs so is there a way where I can install windows 7 from a DVD because USB`s don't really seam`s to work for me.Also I have try`d different iso. for windows 7 and xp..
Thank you for your answers... Harsh

How do I remove Ubuntu without a partition of windows?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 4, 2008
I'm not the most tech-savvy but I know a decent amount. Here's my problem: My friend told me he had an amazing operation system (Ubuntu) that was just like windows. (I know most people don't like it but it works just fine for gamers). So, i let him install it.
Now the problem is, he has no idea how to remove it. My games don't work on it and I cannot even connect to my wireless Internet. How do I remove it, it seems as though there is no partition of my windows. Is it possible to remove it or am I stuck with Ubuntu?
I do have an XP install disc that just crashes when I try to use it.
How to install games for windows live in the same wine prefix as steam?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 6, 2012
I'm looking for help on how to install games for windows live in the same wine prefix as I installed steam in. I am looking to play Fallout 3 through steam and I am following this guide: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...sion&iId=14322 ( Scroll down to get to the how-to ). I have been able to follow all the steps except for installing games for windows live. I installed steam with winetricks so it's in it's own wineprefix. So how can I install games for windows live in that same wineprefix? Thank you.
