Windows 7: error no such partition grub rescue

error no such partition grub rescue

Hello, I am using Windows 7 Starter edition on my Gateway Netbook, ID LT4004u.

I wanted to try out a new OS on it, one that was designed for Netbooks, EasyPeasy.

I downloaded the ISO and used YUMI USB installer to put it on my USB drive. I then tested out EasyPeasy, and liked it. I wanted to install it on the hard drive, and when I wanted to load it instead of Windows I could press a button. So I followed the install instructions and it got installed. Then everything went downhill. It auto defaulted on the Ubuntu, highlighting that option first. After booting into it, I started having an array of problems, e.g. cannot connect to internet with wifi.

I decided to remove EasyPeasy, so I loaded AOEMEI Partition Manager, and simply deleted the Ubuntu partitons. To my horror, next boot I get this message. "error no such partition grub rescue"

I have done research, but I need specified help. I need my Netbook working again in a week, but I cannot access anything now. I do not have a Windows install disc, but I still can get into EasyPeasy OS using my USB drive which has it installed.

Please help!

Well, i'm back. Glad no one wasted their time trying to help me, as I found a solution myself.

1) I install hiren's boot cd on my USB
2) I ran a boot manager and booted my recovery partition
3) I formatted the hard drive and re-installed Windows

All fixed!
