Windows 7: Dual-boot, remove Ubuntu

10 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x86
Dual-boot, remove Ubuntu

i have installed windows 7 then ubuntu alongside it
everytime i start the pc up, there is a screen to choose the OS, that's OK
i think the boot partition is ubuntu
once i removed ubuntu completely from the device and i was unable to boot windows, not even after trying to repair Windows via its DVD, until i installed ubuntu again and did it

i want a way now to remove ubuntu and stay on Windows only, but i can't get it booted up, can anyone help me please???

Note: i removed Ubuntu via windows, right-click on my computer and manage, then formatted its partition

thanks in advance

Mark the Win7 Partition Active.

Then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times to write or repair the System boot files to the Windows 7 partition and overwrite GRUB boot loader.

Be aware however that GRUB can cause Windows 7 to become irreparable when on the same HD.
