    Hi. I recently installed Ubuntu and it sort of took over.
    On STEP 4, there is no 'boot' in the list.

    Why not?

    Hello Acc1999;

    Your question is a little vague. At the bottom right of the "Step 4" pic, there are buttons to "Shut down" or "Restart" (reboot). If you could explain a little further, perhaps we could provide a better answer?

    Cheers!
    Robert

    Re: No BOOT


    I mean, in step 4. I the cmd window, where it lists 'boot' in the right column. Mine doesn't. Is this because my disk is an Upgrade version? If so, where can I get a full version? Free? I have the product key.

    Yes the additional info helps very much. Just for me to be sure, you want to (or already have) removed the Ubuntu partition from your laptop and want to restore the Windows bootmgr?

    If you find this Tutorial somewhat confusing, which I totally understand as I try to avoid command line stuff whenever possible, I would ask / suggest you try the "Startup Repair" from your 7 install DVD or the "System Repair" CD 7 will create and burn for you?

    Questions: Do you have a DVD CD to use?

    Can you boot into anything now? Windows 7 or Ubuntu?

    Re: No BOOT


    Still no luck...
    I did this:
    Opened CMD
    Typed: bootsect /nt60 SYS
    Press: ENTER
    Success!
    Typed: exit
    Press: ENTER
    CMD Closed
    Restart
    Still the same error!

    Instead of Windows, I get the Ubuntu GRUB loader menu. I want to just load Windows so I can delete Ubuntu forever and not have to loose a single Windows file... Is that even possible?

    I have:
    64-bit Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop
    64-bit Windows 7 Pro
    Splashtop (Comes with VAIO computers... If you don't know what it is that is OK)
    64-bit Sony VAIO
    Dual-CPU

    No. If I do, Windows will go Bye-Bye with it, because GRUB took over it. Yes, I do want to remove it. That is why I am looking around for a way.

    Please explain what you mean by "go Bye-Bye with it"? Here is my Grub boot loader:

    Grub is very friendly. You can see where my Grub will boot not only to Ubuntu but to Windows 7, Windows 2000, or Windows XP with out any problems. I can start any of these OS with Grub with no problems.

    Yes, you can restore your Windows "boot loader" by following this tutorial, but there is an easier way even than this.

    Yes


    I can boot into any OS, but I want to remove Ubuntu and Grub and all that. How do you take a screenshot of the boot? Cool! What I mean is, on my old laptop, I removed Ubuntu and Windows went away too. I got a "No OS found" error.
