Installing Windows 7 over Ubuntu
A few months back, my laptop (Lenovo SL410) hard drive died. I replaced it with a SanDisk solid state hard drive. I have the recovery discs and tried to reinstall Windows 7 HP 64 bit, but something went wrong and the installation hung during the second dis, where the drivers are.
I needed to be able to use it right away, so I loaded a Linux OS, Ubuntu 12.04. Works fine and very fast and I like it, but I'd rather install Windows on the HD and run Ubuntu from a flash drive.
So I tried reinstalling Windows, both with the disks I have and with an official ISO from the Microsoft site. It's not working, and I'm not sure why. Do I need to format the HD? (I thought the Windows installation CD did that?) do I need to download a driver for the hard drive? (It's a SATA drive, same as the old one.)
Any ideas for me?
