    No such partition: Grub Rescue

    Hello everyone, I recently deleted my ubuntu partition through windows, and then installed windows 8. Now whenever I restart my pc, it says
    Code:
    no such partition
    Code:
    grub rescue>
    I just want my windows 8 back, is there any way i can fix this without a recovery disc (I downloaded windows 8 through their site) and still have my data? thank you!

    To repair it you will need bootable Windows 8 media (DVD, flash). After booting from it there should be repair option. You need to repair your startup.

    While best to have a Windows 8 repairCD or Flash drive, you can restore a Windows work alike boot loader.

    How to restore the Ubuntu/XP/Vista/7 bootloader
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Re...ta/7Bootloader

    Boot Repair -Also handles LVM, GPT, separate /boot and UEFI dual boot.:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair


    Or from Ubuntu liveCD.
    Restore basic windows boot loader - universe enabled if error on lilo not found
    Simply open Synaptic and Settings > Repositories and tick the box against the Universe repo in the Ubuntu Software tab. Close that window and click on reload before installing lilo with Synaptic or command line.
    sudo apt-get install lilo
    sudo lilo -M /dev/sda mbr
    May show error messages about the rest of lilo missing, ignore, we just want MBR with bootloader.
