This question already has an answer here:
I installed Ubuntu yesterday via a bootable USB drive, created with unetbootin. Everything went very well, but now the computer does not boot unless the USB drive is plugged in. If it's not, then when the computer boots, the boot sequence screen just appears and if I select the hard drive, it will just reboot and go back to this boot sequence screen, until I plug in the USB drive.
Any ideas? Thanks a lot for your help!
UPDATE: Having some valuable data on the machine, I would prefer a solution that doesn't involve reinstalling, but from the first replies, I guess this may be what I have to do eventually. Thanks!
