Previously I had installed the Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows 7.
Now I logged on to Windows, opened the partition editor and deleted the volume containing the Ubuntu - I thought it will delete the Ubuntu and it might help me install another OS - and I restarted the system.
GRUB rescue prompt is there.
I want to log on to Windows. How can I do that?
In GRUB rescue, I tried the following:
ls (hd0) (hd0,3) (hd0,2) (hd0,1) (hd1) (hda1,1)
Tried all combinations of
ls (hdax)/, which threw out:
error: Unknown Filesystem.
I tried this:
rootnoverify (hd0,0) chainloader +1 makeactive boot
It threw out:
I installed Ubuntu from the USB. Now when I restarted the system, I got the GRUB, showing old Windows and the newly installed Ubuntu. I happily logged onto Windows. Then I used standard procedure to remove Ubuntu, so as not to have grub rescue.
