Windows 7: Dual Boot: Ubuntu and W7 Grub issue

Dual Boot: Ubuntu and W7 Grub issue

Ok so I have W7 and Ubuntu desktop installed on my HDD. I used gparted and deleted my ubuntu partition and set it NTFS. But I forgot about the GRUB loader. Now when I boot up, I get the "error 22".

Anyways, how do I set it so I can just boot W7?

Also! I'm on a netbook so it has to be a USB method.

Wlecome to the "Grub error club" as well as the Se7enforums! RyanfromtheShhiir

That's what the repair tools section on the 7 dvd are for correcting mbr entries and other things preventing Windows from a normal startup! In your case you have to load the 7 installer again from the usb source(external hard drive, usb key) that you used to see 7 installed for this.

Right when the installer finishes loading to the point where you select the language and location and you move on to the next screen for the "Install Now" button look down below that for the repair tools link. That will then go through the detection process for the installation you have on and bring you to a menu of options where you then simply click on the Startup Repair. Startup Repair

Well that sounds easy enough! Thanks a bunch!

Really diggin' this forum, btw. A lot of really great info.

Oh also, I am on the RTM release...I dunno if that makes any difference. Or if we're even allowed to talk about it here...

Well I know that can't be the official release since that won't be available until August 6 or 7 on MSDN and Technet. I've been running the RCs rather then bothering with leaks since some may not be what they seem or polluted with bugs. Also some programs will refuse to run on evalution builds provided to developers and are not signed off for general use.

The RCs run everything until the RTMs are available from MS. You'll find a good number here running the 7600s however. But don't post any links whatever you do! I'll pass that along to you here.
