I have a surface pro 3 so I thought about dual booting it with Ubuntu, every thing went fine but I didn't like it because it had some bugs and I couldn't get the type cover to work so I decided to delete it.
Secure boot is off and hibernation is off.
- shrunk main partition (windows)
- create a 20GB partition
- reboot with Ubuntu USB
- installed along side windows
Note: I did not install rEFInd as a replacement EFI boot loader because I decided to delete Ubuntu before completing the whole installation.
- booted into windows 8
- entered disk manger and deleted Ubuntu partition, it became 2 partitions 11.7GB and 7.3GB I deleted both of them.
- rebooted the device and I got GNU GRUB 2.2, as I understood from searching its grub rescue 2.2
- stuck on GRUB
What I tried to do:
- changing the root > root not found
- set root='hd1' , chainloader +1 > error ( I don't remember what it was exactly)
- other commands doesn't seem to work since its a rescue prompt.
- changed bootload to USB>SSD
- booted with windows USB but the BIOS wont detect it
Now I rebooted with Ubuntu USB and I can install/try Ubuntu, I installed it and after the installation was complete it took me back to the bios and asked me again if I want to install or try Ubuntu(Weird).
Anyways, now I have access to Ubuntu but I want to go back to windows, I don't mind losing all the file on windows I just want a stable device.
Is there anyway I can make the BIOS detect the windows USB?
