So basically my mom got this old used laptop and its running Ubuntu as its operating system. My step dad wants to use this laptop for school or something so we need to use Windows op. Is there anything i can use to get the original Op system back onto this laptop or would i just have to go buy Windows from the store or something?
Or are there any free operating systems that i can download and support Microsoft Office?

p.s. sorry if i posted this in the wrong section :eek:

so we need to use Windows op
Why? What is wrong with Ubuntu and OpenOffice?

1) Check if the laptop has a working Recovery Partition.
2) Has the laptop got a Windows sticker on it? That way you can install from any appropriate Windows disk (beg, borrow) and use the Windows sticker number as the Product Key number.
3) LAST recourse, buy Windows.
