I recently got a new netbook. A friend installed Ubuntu, as well as Windows 7 on it. He split the hard drive into 3 partitions - I assume 1 for Windows of around 80GB, 1 for Linux of around 70GB, and another of around 3GB.
Considering I never use Ubuntu, I decided to delete the 70GB partition and format it to NTFS using the Partition Wizard in Windows 7. This was done successfully and I was able to access the partition from inside Windows.
However, upon reboot of my system I received the following error:
error: unknown filesystem
I've read around a bit and from what I understand my netbook is detecting that Linux boot files are missing and wants me to repair them. Is is possible for me to somehow stop it from attempting to boot into Linux, as Windows 7 remains on the the hard drive as it has always been, and I would like to boot into that somehow?
Please note that this is a netbook, so it does not have a DVD drive, meaning that I can't repair any files from a disk. Any help would be appreciated.
