comment How to remove Ubuntu and put Windows back on?
Thank you. I reviewed this option and it looked promising. However I chose to try out the suggestions from Pestilence as it did not require additional software. I was thinking why add to my issue with more software... when I must already have the tools.. if only I knew how to use them. I did also use the Microsoft Console Disk Management feature to delete the swap and Ubuntu partition... so THANK YOU for the idea.

Thanks. This was good. I found my Recovery DVDs & Recovery Tools CD. The latter started the Microsoft Recovery Console. It then asked to start miniNT or I386 -so based on your command line I chose I386. I then entered FIXMBR with no options. Then EXIT. Microsoft then prompted to choose System Restore, Destructive Reovery or TURN OFF and I chose OFF. When I powered up again it boot straight into XP & did a CHKDSK. My XP again works as it did before my UBUNTU experiment. THANK YOU. Next time I will install it in Windows XP so I can use the add/remove feature rather than this manual method.@Marco

I had a look at this. Seemed like a great idea but I was looking for something to the job with the commands already available to me via XP or Ubuntu.

comment How to remove Ubuntu and put Windows back on?
I follow your advice in the first 2 sentences.However in your 4th sentence you say to set Windows as the default OS... This cannot be the problem that causes UBUNTU to boot first as it is currently set to Windows as being the default OS. there is something else that is overriding this that was installed by Ubuntu 11.10... what could that be?
