I recently attempted to install ubuntu 14.04 on a USB flash drive so I can use it on the go. I burned the ISO to a CD and booted it by doing try Ubuntu without installing, and then I clicked install Ubuntu and tried to install to my USB drive.
Now, when I turn on my computer which had Windows 8 on it, when the USB flash drive is not in the computer, it gives me this black screen that says
GNU GRUB VERSION 2.02 BETA2-9UBUNTU1 MINIMAL BASH LIKE LINE EDITING IS SUPPORTED. FOR THE FIRST WORD, TAB LISTS POSSIBLE COMMAND COMPLETIONS. ANYWHERE ELSE TAB LISTS POSSIBLE DEVICE OR FILE COMPLETIONS GRUB>_
and it does not let me do anything except type some thing if you want in the command line. The only way I can boot my windows is by putting the USB flash drive in and choosing windows boot manager in the purple options menu with the choices:
- Ubuntu Advanced
- Ubuntu Windows Boot Manager
- System Settings
I want to be able to boot my old Windows without having the USB in like I did before. This is a big mistake I made and I don't know how to fix it. Please help.
