Windows 7: Recovery not working

30 Dec 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Recovery not working

Hey everybody thanks for taking the time to read this.

A couple of days ago I installed ubuntu to dual boot with my windows 7. I think it was taking up some space it shouldn't have, so I removed it by clearing the partition it was on. I restarted my comuputer and got the error

"No such partition, Grub rescue"

I know by now this is a pretty common problem for us computer noobs trying to deal with a dual boot. The common solution seems to be using a recovery disc to repair windows. Since windows came preinstalled I had to buy one from microsoft, no big deal. I started the disc up, and it took me to where I select the OS to repair. There was none, nor could I repair and restart, so I just continued to the recovery options. I opened up the command prompt and I tried everything I could find from here and all over google, but nothing worked. I got a bootmgr is missing, rebuildbcd doesn't work, and startup repair...won't.

I really need help with this as it's driving me nuts!

Thanks again
