So Ubuntu really wasn't what you were expecting...
You got frightened/frustrated at your lack of understanding and you want out to return back to the laden laggard we all know as Windows.
So, what do you do? How do you uninstall Ubuntu?
You could reformat the Ubuntu partition, but that will just leave you with an unbootable PC.
You search the forums, but all the advice is about inserting you Windows CD and selecting "Recovery Mode" in the option menu.
But say you are using an OEM version that doesn't allow you to do this, how would you go about re-inserting the Windows MBR?
Backup everything and do a clean install? That will certainly get rid of that virus that refused to go. But it will most definitely hamper you're productivity as you are forced to tweak everything once again and re-install all your software.
So here is one I propose, it's clean, short and simple...
Replace sda with the hard-drive that your MBR is on. (ie: sda and sdb is OK! sda1 and sdb1 is not...)Code:sudo apt-get install syslinux sudo dd if=/usr/lib/syslinux/mbr.bin of=/dev/sda
Reboot, and you'll instantly boot straight into Windows, no GRUB!
If you are happy with, all you simply do now is re-insert your Ubuntu CD and re-format your ext3 partition to a FAT32 one!
And thats it!
Now, back on track...
If anyone knows how to reverse this, please let me know!!!
I found this how-to by accident, I was actually trying to make my USB stick bootable (What a huge surprise I found when it really didn't, but instead removed the GRUB bootloader)
The only way I can think of (as both installs are on separate Hard-disks) is to make the second hard-drive bootable, and then boot from it in the BIOS Boot Setup.
Any help is appreciated.
