    So here's the deal. I Installed Ubuntu via USB in dual boot with Win7. I partitioned the drive so Ubuntu had like 22 gigs. I didn't want my drive to be split up so I goog'd a partition manager and got EaseUS. I wiped the partition Ubuntu was on, then I merged it with the C: drive. It told me it needed to reboot so I let it reboot and now when I turn my 'puter on it has a black screen with "grub rescue". Kinda like command prompt. I can type shit but I dunno any commands. Someone help me please ;-;

    For the benefit of the people who google up this thread over the next (x) years, how did you fix it?

    My guess is grub rescue had something to do with it, but I detest multi-booting so I'm not sure.

    Easiest way to fix a problem like this is to insert your Windows 7 DVD and run "fixmbr" in the repair console. It completely removes GRUB and rewrites the MBR to the WIndows standard.

    I did what Jamstruth said actually. I had a Win7 disc lying around, I loaded command prompt via the disc, then ran the following commands: "bootrec /fixmbr" and "bootrec /fixboot"
