Windows 7: Ubuntu still in Windows boot loader after removal

Ubuntu still in Windows boot loader after removal

Hi

I have just removed Ubuntu 10.10 from my computer by deleting partition that it was on.
It was set up by Easybcd so that the option to boot into Ubuntu was through the windows boot loader, and windows seven was the default os. Choosing the Ubuntu option would take you to the Grub menu (it looked identical to a Wubi install).

Now that I have removed Ubuntu it still shows up in the boot loader. I have tried every option in Easybcd that I can think of, I have used my windows seven install disk to run bootrec /fixmbr, bootrec /fixboot and a few other commands, but it still shows up. All I want is to get rid of the boot loader all together, so the computer boots straight into windows seven.

Thanks in advance

Hello mate.



Have you looked at the boot tab of msconfig to see if there's an entry there that can be deleted?

yes I have

I don't know what it is doing because it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't! Sometimes windows is the only entry in the bootloader and sometimes ubuntu is there as well!

I think I may have fixed it: I did a repare in easybcd and that seems to have fixed it.
