Hello, unfortunately I need some help and advice as my brother has damaged and then destroyed completely the bootloader.

 

1) PC had Windows 10 installed, then installed Ubuntu - which installed GRUB.

2) Deleted the Ubuntu partition, directly from disk management inside Windows - Windows did not boot

3) Then went on Live cd ubuntu and deleted the grub partition 499mb, which I suspected had the windows boot partition

 

Now:

 

Nothing boots. Now there are 0 partitions except the big main one.

I am unable to boot via USB Windows 10 as i get the following error.

Please note this error is FROM AFTER running the USB

Questions:Is there a way to recreate a new partition and new boot files via liva Ubuntu disk

 

Or

Is there a website or tool which i can create a bootable USB CD - In order to create a new partion and default and reset the bootmenu?

 

Thanks

That error tells me the computer is bypassing your USB flash drive and booting directly to the HDD.

 

Can you access the Advanced Boot Options using the following method? I am not sure as the Boot partition has been deleted.

 

  • Hold the Power Button for 5 seconds or until the computer completely shuts off.
  • Press the Power Button to turn the computer on.
  • As soon as you see the rotating loading circle, press and hold the Power Button until the computer shuts off.
  • Repeat this process 2 or 3 times until you see the Preparing Automatic Repair screen.
  • Let the computer boot to the Automatic Repair screen.
  • Click Advanced Options, and then select Troubleshoot.

If you can then do an Automatic Repair. It may take up to three attempts.

 
If you cannot access the Advanced Boot Options for an Automatic Repair do the following. It may or may not work.

 

Firstly you will need to disable SecureBoot in your UEFI settings if enabled. Also disable QuickBoot/FastBoot if enabled. Most computers have a boot menu available when tapping a key at boot. This would be F12 for Dell and F9 for an HP.

 

Download BootRepair. You can create a bootable USB flash drive using Rufus and the iso of BootRepair. Attach the flash drive, run Rufus. Select GPT for a partition scheme. Leave all boxes as checked. Where you see FreeDos, select iso image. Click the icon and browse to the iso of BootRepair. Press Start. 

 

Boot BootRepair and click Recommend Repair. You should be connected to the Internet via Ethernet if possible.

 

If BootRepair does not fix the problem then creating the EFI boot partition and copying the files from the Windows partition will have to be done manually using a bootable Partition Manager like Gparted and a Windows 10 install disk.

Firstly - Thank you for replying!

 

I can confirm the following:

 

- Secure Boot is off

- Fast Boot is off

- UEFI and LEGACY are both enabled 

- I do not have Ethernet Internet 

- I do have and use a WIFI Dongle 

 

 

 

 

I am currently re-downing the Windows 10 USB Recovery again on my USB 

 

I am also downloading your suggestion of the Bootrepair disk

 

 

 

Will post updates - Big Thanks!

it doesn't matter how corrupted your system is, you should still be able to boot from USB,

 

either the boot media you are using was not made correctly, or the computer is not booting from USB and its still trying to boot from the hard drive

Hopefully BootRepair picks up your Wifi. You will need to provide your Wifi password in order to connect. Edit. There will be a network icon in the lower right. Clicking it will show available Wifi networks if Boot Repair detects your Wifi card.

Question, why did you remove Ubuntu?

 

I mean yeah you cannot game with linux and linux isnt perfect but is there any real reason why you removed it?

 

As for your issue you may need to create a windows install USB/DVD to restore the bootloader, Ubuntu is not a program after all you just dont remove it without proper procedure.

Just removing disk partitions is not the way to remove a entire OS, this is not a windows .exe

It would have helped if you read up on removing it a little

Why/what advantage's are there of having a internet' connection?


I ask because I managed to boot the bootrepair

Click repair recommend

Reboot

Nothing :(

I did NOT connect to internet

I believe when connected to the internet it will give you a walkthrough on steps required to boot via the terminal. At least it did for me when repairing Grub on a dual boot system. I can't say it would work in your case but I would give it a try if BootRepair detects your Wifi. The network icon is in the lower left of the desktop. Clicking it should have detected your Wifi signal. 

 

If  you prefer not to connect then boot BootRepair again. Click the B icon in the lower left > System Tools > Gparted. Post a screenshot. It can be from a camera. If you have more than one HDD in the computer your disk should be labeled sda in the upper right dropdown box of Gparted.

It doesn't look like any partitions were deleted, at least not your Fat32 EFI partition in Gparted. Click on dev/sda3 to highlight it. Select partition > Manage Flags. Is the EFS flag checked?

Is there a way to delete and recreate that FAT 32 partion?

As I think and from speaking to my brother he must have done something to that? He said he deleted it and then from the windows CMD recreated but something went wrong. I wasn't there and have no idea what he did :( - really sorry and do appreciate it .



I will test it out and let you know shortly.

I don't think it's necessary to recreate it. If the box next to EFS is not checked then check it and click the Green CheckMark to complete the task. Run BootRepair again. If that does not work then you will need to download a Windows 10 iso and create a bootable flash drive with Rufus. I will provide a link on how to manually add files to the EFI partition.

 

Edit: Can you right click dev/sda3 and select unmount? I think this may be due to the Windows 10 hibernation file.
