I had installed ubuntu (twice actually) onto the same drive. I wanted to 'try again' since one of them didn't install correctly and the other installed differently, but it worked. I was getting frustrated with the grub menu because it was really sloppy (There were two windows loaders-one with the windows boot loader to go into Ubuntu-2 different versions of ubuntu-from the first install for some reason- the memtest, etc.).
In my attempts at getting rid Ubuntu to do a fresh installation, I went ahead and deleted the partions that weren't the swap or main via Windows 7. As I said, I am a noob. Now, even though I though I completely got rid of Ubuntu, which includes the grub menu, when I boot my PC I am brought directly to the Grub Rescue. And from what I've found from other forums, the grub rescue isn't even completely functional for me (it doesn't recognize any commands that it should support besides 'ls.' It also returns and 'unkown filesystem' for any partition I try to view or boot.)
Is there any way that I can boot straight into Windows? I fear I may have gone about deleting those partitions in the wrong way. If so, what are my options?
