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.



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 






Edit-  The new thread in linux forum can be found here
