I have a Dual-Boot HP laptop, with Windows 7 Home Premium and Ubuntu 12.04 installed. I messed up a little with Windows and I had to restore my system to factory configurations by using a backup disc I created using the manager.
But when the Recovery Manager finishes copying all the files to the HD, it tells me that it has to reboot the machine SEVERAL TIMES in order to get the default OS and drivers installed. But when it first reboots, it automatically boots into the GRUB manager and tells me to select an OS to boot from, AND WINDOWS DOESN'T APPEAR.
So, my question is: Is there any way to disable Ubuntu from booting first so that it lets the Recovery Manager to reinstall the files? Or do I have to uninstall Ubuntu completely? If it is the last option, will I still be able to start the Recovery Manager WITHOUT any OS? Or is my machine perpetually doomed?
Any explanation or links to tutorials will be really appreciated.
BTW, Ubuntu starts without any problem, it seems that re-formatting the hard drive doesn't affect it -.-
