Hello,

I’ve had an idea in mind to learn Linux on my dell computer that was running the latest window 10 OS. I downloaded Ubuntu onto a usb and booted instead of dual booting I accidentally enrypted my disc and could longer boot windows 10. I’ve tried deleting Ubuntu from the bios but accidentally deleted default windows boot manager there. Now my computer is only running Ubuntu. I’ve tried downloading windows 10 iso onto a usb and booting from there but I keep getting errors such no drivers found or the install.wim file is missing. To fix the errors I’ve deleted and redownloaded the uso but to no avail. Is there any way to fix this and get windows 10 back on my computer with or with Ubuntu?

If you really encrypted the disc, you are going to have to know the password. If you do not know the pw, you are probably going to have to purchase a new drive and clean install windows.

Hi CRJdriver,

I think the Ubutntu encryption is OS software based, it is not the same as say a IBM laptop with hardware based encryption. Thus I think the user can install Windows over it without problems.

Merry Christmas too.

Hopefully so. I never choose to encrypt when installing linux. Perhaps a disk wipe prior to attempting an install of win10.
