I installed Ubuntu 9 yesterday on a PC. Everything worked well until I restarted. Now I cannot access either windows or Ubuntu. I get a msg that reads
error: no such partition
I have no idea what command to give.
My computer came with windows pre-installed I do not have a boot disc other than Hiren's boot CD. I can see the harddrive and the part. but really have no clue on how to delete Ubuntu completely and have my old PC back. Any help would be great. TIA
I tried entering in those commands at grub rescue> but they read unknown command 'root' ect
When I start my PC the system says this
auto detc...port 3...IDE hard disk
sata port0 dvdram
sata port3 st### SMART capable and status BAD
AHCI Port3 device error.
My system was fine before so I know the HDD is ok. I think the install has pooched my windows. On install, I choose it to run duel boot. I cannot get into the recovery console to reinstall windows. Kinda wish I just stuck to the cd version of ubuntu
