Deleting Ubuntu from dual boot your grub deleted. Now you have only Windows 8 in your system

  1. Step : If you have recovery partation then run recovery to recover windows 8 Other wise you should boot from windows 8 cd and repair MBR from your windows 8 CD. It will repair your MBR and boot from windows 8 OS.
  • Can I do that using a flash drive ?

  • Which (Laptop) model no you have? I think F12 or F10 Functions keys will take you to the Boot Options. Make sure your USB should be bootable. Feb 1, 2014 at 4:20
