    Angry [SOLVED] Problems removing ubuntu

    I had windows as well as ubuntu unstalled on my PC, I wanted to remove ubuntu from this pc. I started my computer up from the partion with windows on it and deleted the partion with ubuntu on it. Computer ran fine and then i updated...i had to restart. When i turned my pc back on i got the usuall HP start up screen as this pc is a HP. But then i received a message saying something like

    GRUB LOADING
    PLEASE WAIT...
    Error 22

    Thats it...i cant F11 and do a system restore...i cant boot up form my ubuntu disk...the only thing i can do is get into my BIOS...im stuck...im now realizing simply deleting that partion was not smart...

    Try using super grub
    Boot the super grub cd and select Windows then, fix boot of windows it will do what fixmbr would do if you had the vista disk.
