Currently, when I start my computer, this screen is shown. I do not have any other options, it boots into this within a second of starting my computer.
I used to have Windows 8.1 dual booted with Ubuntu. Today I decided that I don't need Ubuntu anymore and would rather have the extra space. These are the steps I took:
- Opened disk manager. Deleted the partitions I believed to be Ubuntu (99% sure I allocated 100GB right next to my D: partition, and that's what I deleted and merged with D). There were 3 partitions next to D, which I believe somehow all belonged to Ubuntu, and when added together were 100GB. They were all marked as "Healthy primary partition"
- Went into the UEFI settings and enabled Secure Boot, disabled CSM
- Restarted and landed on the above screen.
If I do
ls I get the following options:
(hd0) (hd0,gpt6) (hd0,gpt5) (hd0,gpt4) (hd0,gpt3) (hd0,gpt2) (hd0,gpt1)
When I do
ls (hd0,gpt1) I get
Filesystem is fat
Everything else returns
Filesystem is unknown
I have previously made a recovery USB for my Windows, but I don't know how to boot from it. I don't particularly care about the stuff I had on my Windows machine and all I really want is to have a computer that boots into Windows. If I could have it as it was out of the box, that would be great. Any advice on how I should proceed?
