If you installed Linux on the computer, you broke the Windows install. Now the question is,are you wanting to only use Ubuntu, or do you only want to use Windows.
The windows install was fine with linux installed before trying the factory reset. Dual boot worked. The only reason I installed Linux on the partition that already had it was to have grub recognize the windows recovery environment ( which it did ). The recovery still won't boot though even though the partitions are intact.
To answer your question, I'd like to get back to factory, and once I am, go back to my working dual boot like I've always had.

I would just run whichever OS you are not going to be using all of the time, into a Virtual Machine install.
Whatever you did, fubar'd your Windows install. Nothing against you, but I would choose Linux over Windows any day.
I hear you. I'd rather run Linux as well. I mainly only need Windows for those rare times there isn't a Linux program that does what I need to do. That's pretty uncommon, and even less common thanks to Wine.
