Ok, so the other day decided to recover my win 7 to factory settings. But, when loading for the first time win 7 opens two pages than error, without even letting me complete the recovery process. Long story short didn't have a win 7 recovery disk so i search for a resolution without the CD. Called Microsoft and Gateway, they both told me that I need spend 100$ toward a new recovery Cd. Than I made the decision to download Ubuntu 12.10 on usb and boot and install. Did so and made a partion of 500-215. After install was able to access win 7 recovery in unbuntu start up menu. Reinstalled win 7 without saving files and docs, it was my only option that worked(but where saved with ubuntu instalation). Ok,so my questions are, both on win 7 and my ubuntu they only display 500gig hdd when I am suppose to have 750 hdd, is it ok that they store in same device and what happened to missing storage?
Help? I'm tired of searching
