I need very specific help, how do I boot windows 8.1 when I am stuck in the GRUB "Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported..." I cannot boot from installation media as I have none and need help getting to Windows from inside GRUB. Please help! Thank you.


Try the following commands on the grub command line

set root=(hd0,1)
chainloader +1

You might need to use ls to ensure windows is in the (hd0,1) partition or not. If not, just enter the windows (or any other OS) partition instead.

  • Thank you, but I fixed this a while back by using chainloader (path to EFI boot loader) then boot (same path). – Jakesully123456 Sep 24 '15 at 19:54
