Alright, I've searched high and low for a solution.

I'm dual booting Ubuntu and Windows 7. On my 7 partition I have Paragon Backup and Recovery Suite installed. This program has a boot screen, "press F6 to enter recovery console." Well, I have a boot disc for that console, rendering the boot screen useless to me. In addition to that, it replaces Grub2, so every time I want to boot Ubuntu I have to boot the livecd and reinstall grub. Is there any way to remove this boot screen?

Any advice would be great.

Thanks,
Elementality

I know of 2 Windows command that might help. They won't put grub2 back, but it should replace Recovery Console with the default Windows bootloader.

You'll need your Windows 7 boot disk, and be able to boot to it and get to a command prompt through the disk. After you get there, type the following 2 commands (one after another): fixboot, and then fixmbr. these should put the default Windows bootloader into place. I don't have any idea how to put grub2 back. I specialize in getting rid of it.
