I am buying a Alienware M14x for one of my relatives for Xmas, he clearly said he wants a Alienware and I am getting him one, but it comes with Ubuntu on it, and there is no Alienware restore disk. If I just put a clean install of Windows, it won't have any of the Alienware things, like AlienFX, would it? Please show me which install of Windows I need to use so that AlienFx is There.

Thanks

If it comes with Ubuntu, then whatever AlienWare applications are on it will not run in a Windows environment.
Your best bet is to see if there is a Windows version at the AlienWare site, and install that after the Windows install.

But if this is a new machine, why aren't you getting it with Windows preinstalled?

New, used, whichever.
There is no way to make the Linux applications on it run in a Windows environment. You'll need to find them, if you can, and install after the Windows installation.
