Iv'e installed ubuntu just to download windows and create bootable windows usb, Iv'e done it, and now I CAN'T uninstall ubuntu from ubuntu, and I can't run windows setup because that GNU thing is always running instead my windows setup.... The only solution is to throw a goddamn hard disk and buy me a new one, so I can install windows... Having Ubuntu is worst than a virus, can't remove it, and can't use it neighter because it sucks.

Thanks. This helped me when I accidentally overwrote the MBR of Windows with Grub!
Vitaly Vlasenko (23 days ago)
So, you just swap grub to lilo passing the only option to the new loader. Is "bootrec /FixMBR" no longer available in Windows 10?

Please help me. I have Linux installwd. I don't have windows 10 anymore. I want to reload windows 10 on my laptop. But it won't boot through the USB. It is a live USB and I have tested it. It works. And I can't access my bios. I've taken out my rtc battery. And it comes up with an error but it doesn't reset the BIOS. I don't have a code that pops up on screen when I fill the incorrect password 3 times. So I'm stuck with Linux. Unable to change to windows. And unable to change bios settings

If you can enter the boot option menu before actually booting into any os using ESC or any other key , then simply choose windows boot manager and start windows to do the cleanup stuff

My computer doesn’t have a wifi adapter card, so I bought a USB adapter but it won’t work for Linux because it needs to use its own program which can’t be installed because it’s an exe file. When you’re in the terminal and install lilo, I’m going to presume that’s downloading something and needs an internet connection. Is there anyway to get this done without internet? If not I could probably just move my router so I can temporarily use the Ethernet cable and try this method to get rid of this miserable operating system. With that being said this seems like the quickest and easiest way to deal with booting and partitioning and I thank you for being concise, after all I don’t want to deal with Ubuntu for any longer than I need to.
