I have a queation, that I considered rather "simple" until I just didn't get to fix it :/ Since I'm assuming there will be more people facing this problem in the future, I'll just ask here.
I bought a windows 8 OEM machine with pre-installed system. Since I'm used to dual booting windows and ubuntu, I aimed to do so on this machine, too. I created a windows system image and a system repair disc, wiped the hard drive from ubuntu-live and installed ubuntu, which worked well even with a UEFI boot partition.
I left about 400GB of unpartitioned space and tried to install windows 8 into this space, using the system image, I created.
This is where the problem starts.
Windows 8 wants to re-partition the whole drive, in order to re-install the image.
Since i didn't get an installation dvd and the licence key is hard coded into UEFI, how can i install windows 8 into the free space without formatting the drive?
I hope somebody has figured out way to acomplish this. Thank you in advance.
