  1. Uninstall Ubuntu Dual boot and Repairing Dual Boot in Windows 10


    Hello.

    I had dual-booted my Dell laptop which came with preinstalled Windows 10. I had dual booted with Ubuntu 16.04 by creating a partition on the disk. To remove this dual boot, i.e. I only wanted to keep Windows 10, I formatted the disk, drive F(in my case), where Ubuntu was stored. But, now whenever I boot my system, a black grub screen comes with the following message:

    "Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device completions.

    grub> _"

    Upon writing 'exit', I am able to enter Windows.

    1. I wish to know the reason behind it and how it can be removed.

    2. I found this site, https://askubuntu.com/questions/1123089/uninstall-ubuntu-dual-boot, I went ahead and performed all the steps. But somehow ended up with this error.


    Also, I saw your reply on this thread https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...ndows-10/1ef0cab0-37bd-4eaf-b547-f0e8ca7e1972. But it did not help me to remove my error. I will really appreciate your help in removing this error.

    Thank you.

    :)

    Repairing Dual Boot in Windows 10

    Hello.

    I had dual booted my Dell laptop which came with preinstalled Windows 10. I had dual booted with Ubuntu 16.04 by creating a partition on the disk. To remove this dual boot, i.e. I only wanted to keep Windows 10, I formatted the disk, drive F(in my case),
    where Ubuntu was stored. But, now whenever I boot my system, a black grub screen comes with the following message:

    "Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device completions.

    grub> _"

    Upon writing 'exit', I am able to enter Windows.

    1. I wish to know the reason behind it and how it can be removed.

    2. I found this site, Dual-boot Repair tool for Windows 10 , should I go ahead as it says? Will I end up losing data?

    Thank you.

    Repairing Dual boot for Windows 10

    Hello.

    I had installed Ubuntu for a dual boot but ended up deleting it and the partitions. Now when I boot my system a black screen appears with the message:

    "Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device completions.

    grub> _"



    I can get to Windows by typing 'exit'. How can I get rid of these extra steps to starting my computer?

    There is another post that already asked about this exact problem but following the directions did not fix it for me (see link below). Is there another way to fix this problem besides booting from an install and typing "bootrec.exe /fixmbr" into the command
    prompt?
