Can't fully uninstall Ubuntu?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok so I want to uninstall unbuntu on this computer but I think I might have messed something up and I can't get rid of it at the boot screen. It's just a annoying thing I want to get rid of. Everytime I turn on the computer it asks me if i want to run windows or ubuntu but when i press ubuntu it doesnt work becuase i erased it in a bad way on my actual computer. I tried reseting the bootloader or something from the windows disk but that didn't work. is there any way i can get it off my computer? Its not anywhere on my hard drive..

In windows, right click "my computer" -> mange -> disk management -> right click partition Ubuntu was installed on and delete (none if you used Wubi, just uninstall like any other program I believe).

Easiest way, so we don't have to explain how to do so in Linux or with gparted.

If that doesn´t work, just put in the windows disk and have Windows fix the startup. It should overwrite grub and everything should be peachy.
