Restore Boot Manager

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I decided to use linux as my 2nd partition on my hdd. So consequently I used the Grub bootloader, now by a series of events I'm without a ubuntu partition, grub, or the ability to use my windows partition. I'm looking into fixing grub, but another idea i have is restoring the windows bootloader. any idea if this would work and how to do it?

Grab your Windows 7 CD, stick it in and boot the disk up, choose language, then choose "repair your computer", then choose "command prompt".

At prompt type

bootrec /fixmbr
bootrec /fixboot
bootrec /rebuildbcd

In that order. Then type:

exit

Should reboot and should have the Windows 7 bootloader back.

Send me a PM if you have any trouble dude.
