I've seen a lot of posts on this topic, but I couldn't find anything yet to solve my problem. I recently removed my linux partition (to keep Windows), and upon starting my computer up, received the message from grub loader:
error: no such device : #long number#
Entering rescue mode..
grub rescue >
I've found at a lot of places that rebooting it using a windows recovery usb stick, entering the command prompt and typing
would restore the windows (Mbr?) bootloader. However, when I typed these commands, it said that it had succesfully completed these actions, but upon restarting my computer, it gave the same error message as before.
I've also tried to make a boot-able usb to boot the boot-repair with Rufus, however, my computer (Windows 10, Dell XPS, old model from apprx 6 years old) won't recognize this usb to boot from.
I'm completely lost why these things won't work. If anyone has more experience then me and has an idea, please let me know.
Thanks in advance, Cheers
