I 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 options - one with the Windows bootloader to go into Ubuntu, and two different versions of Ubuntu from the first install for some reason and memtest, etc.).
In my attempts at getting rid Ubuntu to do a fresh installation, I went ahead and deleted the partitions that weren't swap or main via Windows 7. As I said, I am a noob.
Now, even though I though I completely got rid of Ubuntu, including the GRUB menu, when I boot my PC I am brought directly to GRUB Rescue. And from what I've found from other forums, GRUB rescue isn't even completely functional for me (it doesn't recognize any commands that it should support besides
ls. It also returns
unknown 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?
