Installing Windows on a Ubuntu laptop

Postby Gh0st.IRE on Sun Nov 23, 2014 12:01 pm

Hey guys. I have a laptop running Ubuntu at the moment. I want to use Windows instead. I have my 8.1.iso file, made a bootable USB but when I try to boot in to it before my system loads, my laptop tells me that the Boot Manager is missing, Press Ctrl + Alt + delete to continue/restart.

Any ideas?

Did you make the USB through the official Microsoft app?

Tried a new .iso and it seems to be mounting without issue now. Will report back.
