After asking someone to help me remove Linux Mint from Windows Vista I now have the following message upon booting up the computer.

 

Error: no such partition

Entering Rescue mode

rub  rescue

 

My question is how do I resolve this? Please help.

Do you have a Vista Install disk?

 

Edit: The install disk will let you do a startup repair.

No I do not have  Windows Vista Installation disk. However I managed to fix this issue by following this guide here:

Glad you got it fixed. I was going to suggest BootRepair if you did not have the install disk but I did not know if it would work to repair a MBR after a linux uninstall on a dual boot system. Thanks for the update on this. Did you use the recommended repair?

Yes I used the recommended repair option. I managed to boot the computer from a Live Ubuntu Disk and did it that way.

Okay, thanks again. It's very good to know that it can repair a Windows Boot problem after a linux uninstall. It may even help a boot problem on a Windows only computer not caused by linux but I have not had a chance to try it yet.
