I upgraded my laptop to win 8.1 and I was using ubuntu 12.4 as well but windows quit in middle of the upgrade (from 8 to 8.1) and ubuntu quit all together. I mean I up win7 to win8 no problem but from 8 to 8.1 it messed up and later I found out the MS deletes all your backup files so you cant go back (I got this info from their own ms site) so I ordered win8 dvd but was Not bootable??!(can u say stupid)? After wasting lot of my time and money I kept running chckdsk /a/f or whatever for about a YEAR until one day it worked and windows came up but Ubuntu never came up again?!
I ran Wubi recently but they have discontinued wubi (like idiots) and I just assume lay off ubuntu and/or go to another version of linux or get a dedicate machine. I am not gonna risk messing my windows up because I got too much info on it (on my D: drive)
