This question already has an answer here:

I recently dual booted my computer to have Windows 7 and Ubuntu 13.10 on it. I later decided that I didn't want Ubuntu so in Win 7 I went to disk management and deleted 2 volumes that were not their before I made an Ubuntu partition and then when I restarted my computer all that came up on the screen was error no such partition grub rescue>

What does this mean? What do I do to either boot into Windows or Linux? Any help is appreciated I am very new to Linux Thank You!
