Deleting Ubuntu from dual boot your grub deleted. Now you have only Windows 8 in your system

  1. Step : If you have recovery partation then run recovery to recover windows 8 Other wise you should boot from windows 8 cd and repair MBR from your windows 8 CD. It will repair your MBR and boot from windows 8 OS.

But how to Boot using USB when I am not able to enter in my Boot Options ?? – Sujay Jan 31 '14 at 15:40
Which (Laptop) model no you have? I think F12 or F10 Functions keys will take you to the Boot Options. Make sure your USB should be bootable. – Abdul Kadir Feb 1 '14 at 4:20
