In bios and menu where you pick which one to use it has Ubuntu 14.04 lts and Windows 8.1, and when I switched to it, it said no recovery disk. Can Win 8.1 be installed with a recovery disk iso or is it just shipped that way.
Thank you for joining the Intel® community.
It is shipped this way. Bear in mind that this model comes with a pre-Installed operating system which is Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64-bit, so the recovery partition is for Ubuntu only. Now, if you created a recovery partition for your Windows you should be able to start from there.
