After boot up menu, it says "error: no such partition Entering rescue mode... grub rescue>"

Command ls brings up: (hd0) (hd0,msdos2) (hd0,msdos1)

How can I fix this and boot up to Windows? (on the Ubuntu grub, it said it was dev/sda1 if that's relevant.)

And, yes, I did delete the partition Ubuntu was being hosted in.

  • Sorry for being a computer noob, but what does this mean and how can I solve my problem? Should I burn a Windows 10 ISO to my USB drive and solve my problems from there? – user123 Jul 20 '17 at 16:59
  • press a funtion key to get the system settings ... it varies from computer to computer but usually F2,F10, or F12 – ravery Jul 20 '17 at 17:00
