  1. Re-installing windows


    Good afternoon all, here's my issue


    I purchased a Microsoft Surface Laptop 13'' about 2 years ago. Last year I installed Ubuntu on my main drive and I'm attempting to re-install Windows. It currently has no OS and I cannot seem to re-install Windows through the UEI troubleshooting process. I never had a physical license for my Surface since I purchased it with Windows on it. I still have Windows boot and can attempt to re-install but it never finishes, always prompting me with some error saying there is no disk to install on. Although I have re-formatted my NVMe to NTFS. I did this through command prompt. I know I'm not giving the best description. All I'd like to do is re-install my original Windows license onto my Surface Laptop (p.s. I have two more copies of Windows on thumb drives that I purchased and use on my other PC's). Not sure if those can be used to fix this issue.


    Thanks

    :)

    Step 1

    Step 2
    install all drivers from the cd that came with the god damn motherboard *common sense*
    Step 3
    update windows
    Step 4
    install misc etc crap like flash java etc etc
    Step 5
    Install GPU drivers
    Step 6
    go back to using your pc without issue.

    +1

    If you having an issue installing a driver that worked before you formatted or wont install on a fresh build, sometimes this means hardware damage
