I have a Ubuntu 12.10 and Windows 7 dualboot installed on my Asus Zenbook. I wanted to remove Ubuntu, so I thought I could follow this guide to restore the Windows boot loader http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/33433...ubuntu-update/ and remove the linux partition after that. I also have the Asus recovery partition, so I booted into that to see whether the Asus recovery wizard had an repair option. Well, it didn't, the only option was to recover Windows to the entire hd. So I canceled the wizard, but after this I was greeted with "error: unknown filesystem" and the grub rescue prompt.
I'm scared of messing things up further, what should I do to either get back to my dualboot or create a windows-only-boot?
Would booting a Live USB and restoring the Windows bootloader with syslinux or mbr work? (http://robert.penz.name/221/mini-how...omment-page-1/)
I'm a newbie, so I'm not sure about the sda part though. The windows partition is sda1, does that mean I should replace dev/sda in "sudo install-mbr -i n -p D -t 0 /dev/sda" with dev/sda1?
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
