Load Windows on Linux laptop

I needed to change my laptop back to a Windows 7 laptop from Linux Mint because I am swapping laptops with my daughter. Not Windows 8. She is very clear about the fact she does not want Windows 8. Each to their own.  I’ll then be loading her laptop with Linux Mint. Loading Linux onto a Windows laptop is easy. You get the iso for the Linux Mint version you want and away you go. Doing the reverse is easy too but only if you know how. If you do a search for loading Windows onto a Linux laptop then you get way too much information about fdisking and this code and that code and dos boxes. All this is possible if you like doing it. Most people want easy. The video here shows the easiest way of doing it by using the Windows installation disk and using the custom set up. Works like a charm and makes it all very straightforward. The video can be back tracked if you didn’t quite catch the set of instructions because he does go quickly. Prefer that over someone who goes far too slowly with instructions. I then use Advanced System Care to get the drivers. Otherwise you have to wait for Windows to bring them to your machine or go out looking for them yourself. I don’t dual boot. I prefer to have just one operating system on each computer I have. Windows 8 doesn’t like to dual boot at all and other versions of Windows will dual boot  far better if Windows is loaded first.
