Hi all,

 

I am retired, living 550 kilometers from the nearest city.

 

I just bought a used "high spec" computer which had Windows 7 Ultimate installed on the one SSD, and Linux on the other SSD. At my request the seller generously uninstalled Linux, and formatted the SSD.

 

When I now start my computer, I get the message;

 

GNU GRUB version 2.02 beta2-9

Minimal BASH - like line editing is supported. For the first word. TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere elseTAB lists possible device or file completions.

grub>

 

When disconnecting the second SSD, it boots well, but then I obviously don't have use of the second SSD.

 

I have since Friday been reading on the web, and whilst there seems to be an "Ubuntu" cure for this, I have absolutely no idea what it refers to. I used to think I have an average knowledge of computers, But clearly I don't.

 

Please help if you can, as my computer is my only company.

 

Thanks & kind regards

Hi Zelle, and Welcome,

 

You might be better off posting this in the linux forum.

 

Grub is more of a linux thing and I am sure someone will know how to remove it,

 

Good luck 

 

Hedge
