    @Nevrosi, you posted in Forum Feedback & Help which is for help with using the forum. I've moved this into Other OS because, at the moment, this is a Windows problem, albeit caused by removing Ubuntu.

    By deleting the Ubuntu partition, grub (the Ubuntu bootloader) in the mbr is looking for the rest of itself in the Ubuntu partition, which is no longer there. You need to re-install the Windows mbr if you need to boot into Windows before trying to re-install Ubuntu. What you need should be on this community documentation page:

    If you look at the methods under "How to partially fix the Windows bootloader using an Ubuntu CD" you can do these using a live Ubuntu USB as well.

    If you still have ubuntu on the usb stick you can reinstall it and it will reinstall grub for you which will allow you to boot with Windows. If you have the Windows ISO image then you can create a bootable install media with the Windows USB download tool http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/...usbdvd_dwnTool boot from it and select the repair option to reinstall the windows MBR. Now you can delete the windows partitions.
