Was running ubuntu 14.02 and windows 10 in dual boot (using grub as my boot menu).

Went to uninstall ubuntu and started by deleting the ubuntu partitions and expanding the windows one using the windows partition tool.

Then booted windows 10 from a usb to attempt to reinstall the windows bootloader. Went into command prompt and entered bootrec.exe /fixmbr . It said the operation was completed successfully.

Restarted the computer expecting windows to boot but it went to a screen saying 'Minimal BASH-line editing is supported'. Can't seem to get past it. Please help!

  • it sounds like your bios has the ubuntu uefi boot listed first, try to go into bios and change it for the windows boot loader to be first. – Richard W. Seitz Nov 2 '16 at 20:31
  • don't know how to get past the 'minimal BASH-line editing is supported screen though'. It's the first thing that pops up when I turn it on and I can't work out what command to use to get past it. Looks like this itsfoss.com/… – Louis Nov 3 '16 at 1:12
