Hi guys, got a question. I have a laptop which came with Windows 8.1 pre-installed, it's a HP Stream 11 if that makes a difference. I installed Ubuntu 14.04 on it using a USB flash drive only now I don't want it anymore and it seems that while downloading Ubuntu, I accidentally deleted Windows 8.1. Anyone have any ideas how to download/install it legally without it costing too much? Also if there's a way to get it without electronic payment that would be great. Any help appreciated. Thanks. - Leena

As I already said, yes, it's legal. The install key is embedded in the BIOS and will be used by the installer automatically.
