    I deleted all of my partitions

    A few months ago, I had Windows 8 as the only operative system on my computer and I wanted to install Ubuntu, having both operative systems on my pc (dual boot). However, after supposedly installing Ubuntu, I wanted both Ubuntu and Windows 8 to appear on the screen when booting (so I could choose which one I wanted to work with), and that's when the problem appeared... in the terminal, I followed a tutorial that could make the dual boot work (I don't remember what I wrote) and, all of a sudden, all of my partitions were gone. I initiated the computer again and it would go straight to the BIOS. Then, after several tries, I somehow installed Ubuntu and have been working on it since. However, I know that all of my partitions are messed up and now that I need both Windows and Ubuntu on my pc, I want to delete the current Ubuntu that I have and start working on the computer like it didn't have any operative systems (install both Windows and Ubuntu from scratch). I really appreciate any help that you can give.

    I attached a print screen of gparted, which shows all of the partitions on the computer.

    Do you have Windows on a bootable media, DVD or USB ?

I run 3 HDS. 1 SSD, and 2 normal drives. I just clean formatted my SSD and installed Windows 8 on it, which I always put on that drive. However I am seeing a bunch of partitions, 4 recovery partitions. Are these normal? If not, how would I get rid of them? 29555

Why 2 partitions?
Recently, I bought an ASUS N series notebook with Windows 8. It came with 2 partitions on the hard drive - C:// and Data D://. I assume that C drive is meant for the operating system, programs and system folders. Data D: is presumably meant for all the user's data files including documents,...
