Accidentally wiped out windows while installing Ubuntu.

Advertisement
Recently I bought a laptop at Best Buy (Lenovo Ideapad N586) and used a upgrade offer to upgrade to Windows 8. Today I installed Ubuntu and intended to dual boot but I screwed up and accidentally wiped the drive during the install. The laptop did not come with any windows disks. Will I have to buy WIndows to reinstall it?
Thanks!

Thanks, but that did not work. When I erased the Hard Drive it must have wiped the recovery partition also, When I press that button, it just boots into Ubuntu.
Hi
As the button is not working and you erased the whole hard drive, then you cannot anyhow revert to the windows 7 without the windows disk. However it is neccessary that you will have to buy disks. As you have ubuntu, you could use it to download windows 7 official iso from my digital life forums and use the product key that is found below your laptop. Link for iso is below

You could either burn a disk of the iso or make a bootable disk/pen drive from it.
Use Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool to make a dvd/usb of iso. After installing windows then install all the drivers for windows 7, Download below
