This all started when I did something stupid and deleted a partition with linux on it. I got a grub recovery error on restart. After doing some research I tried running a repair tool I found on sourceforge. Here's the link with info from that: http://paste.ubuntu.com/16208939/     I had then got the error msg "BOOTMGR is missing Press ctrl+alt+del to restart". Tried running the windows 10 install repair tool with no success. Even tried rebuilding BCD from command line and still no avail. 

 

Thanks for any help!

It can take up to 3 attempts for startup repair to complete the repairs. If Startup Repair does not work you can download the Boot Repair Disk and select Recommended Repair.

 

With a Windows 10 computer you may need to disable SecureBoot in BIOS before the Boot Repair Disk will run.

Thanks John! I didn't think about trying startup repair multiple times and that actually worked! :bananas:

Glad the easier solution worked for you. Thanks for the update.

 

Edit: If you do not plan on installing Linux again then you can expand the Windows partition to recover disk space.

@ JohnC.......the program/link you provided in post# 2....Boot Repair Disc....works like a charm....fast and effective.

 

I used Rufus to 'burn' the iso to a thumb drive...also very effective and fast.
