No it was wiped completely.
Linux over wrote whole system - lost a LOT of stuff and time.
No idea how.
I just did a std. install from a "try b4 u buy" ISO download of UberStudent.
From reading around it now seems my best bet would be to set up Windoze in VBox or VMWARE and hopefully install my VITAL Windoze programs there.
I do have a licensed Windows8 Disk.
Also a leftover NEW XP install Disk.
My hope would be to install a few vital Windows only programs that I use, like Dragon Voice-2-Text, very difficult with its "security".
So I do need the ability to share between the Op Systems.
Any advice/warnings appreciated!
