    Ubuntu 12.10 to Windows 8

    Hello, today I decided to pass on Windows 8 because my laptop is not working properly with Ubuntu (When you turn on or when the charger is on and connected his laptop so restart (P.S. When a car is on and run virtual "VirtualBox" and connect the charger stays lit))

    And I would like to know how can I switch from Ubuntu to Windows without using DVD / USB?

    P.S. The laptop is Toshiba Satellite A300 PSAG0E.

    Not sure I understand the description of your problem. You might be having hardware charger issues (?).

    Since you're not upgrading, you need to get the Windows 8 System Builder version (or Windows 8 Pro system builder). I believe DVD is they way you're going to do it. Why do you want to avoid a DVD? I haven't seen any place where Microsoft allows anyone to download an ISO image of the retail install. I'm not sure what these products cost in Romania.

Cannot run Win XP or ubuntu after installing Windows 8
Hello, I had Win XP and Ubuntu (through Wubi) installed in my 500 GB SATA hard disk. I installed Windows 8 in another 80 GB ATA hard disk. When I rebooted, I was unable to log into Win XP or Ubuntu; just Windows 8. How can I get back Windows XP and Ubuntu installations? Thanks, Emma Good.
