So I just switched over to ubuntu. I used easyBCD to choose between linux mint and windows 7 before the switch. I now have it set up for a dual boot. When the installation was finished, I logged into windows and updated the boot information in easyBCD. I deleted the Linux Mint option, and added Ubuntu. When I restarted my computer, my options were Linux Mint and Ubuntu, both of which bring me to the Ubuntu GRUB loader.

EasyBCD deleted the wrong option, and now I can't get back into Windows. If I choose "Ubuntu," it takes me to the GRUB loader, and the Windows 7 option at the bottom of that just throws me back to the easyBCD menu. I was wondering if there is a way to fix this without completely reinstalling Windows.

If you download Grub Cusomizer from the Software Centre, this gives you the option to Reorder and customize your Grub to how you want it.

  • That's not quite what I'm looking for. The grub loader is fine. What happens is when you try to boot windows, it has it's own grub-like menu, which only includes ubuntu now.
