Install Windows 7 from Ubuntu without CD or USB
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 1, 2011
Hello Ubuntu Forums, I was wondering how I could re-install Windows 7 from Ubuntu(or GRUB2).
Here is my current situation:
I was using GParted (I knew the risk), and I was removing a partition. And I accidentally removed my Windows Partition(It was mostly filled with junk.). Now I want to reinstall it from a ISO Backup on my Ubuntu Partition. The problem is that I have a 2GB usb (So I can't install from USB), And no blank DVD's. How would I go about installing from the iso? I'm using Natty.
By the way, is this the correct category to post this in?
Anyway, thanks for any help!
HOW TO: Recover Windows MBR using Ubuntu LIVE CD
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 25, 2007
Tested on Ubuntu 7.04; Ubuntu 7.10 and Linux Mint 4.0 Live CDs
If want to restore Windows Bootloader and for some reason cannot use the windows installation cd, there is a simple way to do it:
NOTE: make sure you have internet working.
1) Boot with Ubuntu Live CD or Linux Mint Live CD
2) On the terminal:
sudo apt-get install ms-sys
ms-sys --mbr /dev/hdX
NOTE: in my case the main windows xp system is located in hda1 so I used ms-sys --mbr /dev/hda
This should get your windows back.
Is there any way I can edit the windows registry from ubuntu live CD?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 9, 2009
Hi, I have force booted the windows partition from the live CD, I could also do it from the working linux partition but I find everything much smoother on the live cd. So when I changed drive J to C in windows I lost all my user Icons, so does anyone know where I can access my Hkey_Local_Machine to mark it as J again? Or, would it be even easier to boot into my linux partition, force mount, and run regedit?
Windows XP SP3 Btw.
Get Windows XP product key from Ubuntu live CD?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 16, 2009
I need to re-install windows (surprise!) on somebody's computer. The problem is that they don't have their disc or product key. I want to retrieve the product key from the installation before I wipe it, and I'll just use my personal disc to install the files.
I know there are Windows programs one can run to get the key, but the problem here is that Windows wont boot at all (surprise again), not even in safe mode.
How can I retrieve it from a Live CD?
using Ubuntu Live CD 12.04 to purge virus on Windows Vista
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 3, 2013
A friend who is not too computer savvy has telephoned me for some technical help.
She has a virus contaminated Windows PC and is now being blackmailed by a caller to remove a planted virus.
I've told her to not use her PC until I have a look.
From what I gather I believe the attacker has been given remote access to her PC since she
followed some telephoned instructions from this rogue caller.
She is seeing a white screen.
I've warned against crook callers who masquerade as Microsoft Support and plant viruses.
Another possibility is her younger family using the shared PC for games.
Tomorrow I'm going to pay a visit with my Ubuntu 12.04 Live CD to try to sort this out on the Windows box.
What procedure is recommended to run Ubuntu live CD to clear out host PC windows virus(es)?
I've looked at Clamtk but the latest Clamtk runs on 13.04 (not my 12.04).
Could I run AVG (windows only) in wine on Ubuntu 12.04 to clear out viruses on the (contaminated) Windows partition?

Dualmode dualboot Ubuntu 64bit with Windows 7 64bit without burning a CD
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 11, 2012
Dual-booting Ubuntu in Win7 is no longer a big problem for many people. Just a bit of googling will give you dozens of solutions. However, to install a single physical copy of Ubuntu (on the same harddisk of currently running Win7) which can run both under Win7 and standalone (I call it dual-mode) is kind of headache for 64-bit windows because of the new restriction on raw disk access from Vista onwards (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/942448) as well as Windows 7 64-bit forbid loading unsigned kernel driver signature (this can be solved by enabling testsigning in boot config using bcdedit).
I have cracked my head and eventually managed to install Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit using VirtualBox 4.2.4 using a Ubuntu ISO image without burning a physical CD. The copy of Ubuntu is installed using VirtualBox but can run not only inside Windows 7's virtualBox but also on its own (restart computer and boot directly into the same copy of Ubuntu). I think this way of instal
Burned cd on Ubuntu, blank on windows??
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 3, 2008
Everytime I burn a cd/DVD on ubuntu, it burns perfectly fine... but then I try to load it onto windows, and it shows that there is space being taken up on the cd.. but I am unable to see anything. It goes the same way with my MP3 player. Is it some kind of format issue on ubuntu? or is it windows?
Recovering a windows XP install with Ubuntu live CD Conflicting programs on startup
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 8, 2009
Sorry if this isn't completely Ubuntu related, but I hope someone can help me here.
I've been working on a laptop for somebody, just cleaning it up and removing unnecessary things for them. I decided to install Avast, Ad-aware and spybot all with the intention of doing scans and cleaning things up. After installing all three, the laptop now crashes on startup, suggesting that Avast and ad-aware (or something) are conflicting on startup (I guess cause apparently ad-aware has a startup daemon now..)
I've been posting on a windows forum and they've suggested logging in as an admin, which I can't because it logs into the user account automatically. They also suggested using ERDcommander, which is like a live Windows OS for recovery. It looked promising, but it locks up every time after about 30 seconds of use. I managed to get it to check for system restore points on the XP install, but apparently there are none anyway.
The only thing I can get it to do of course, is boot into an

I came across this tutorial. It is for Windows however. What program would be the equivalent to ImgBurn?
