I am getting this screen whenever I boot after deleting Linux partitions
4522

Long story short I wanted to uninstall Linux Mint, I deleted the partitions in disk management, then I tired the old fixmbr fixboot in command prompt which didn't work it said access denied then I tried doing what the guy said in this YouTube video
but that didn't work, when I got to the part where I delete the ubuntu folder from the efi, using command rd ubuntu/s it said rd : Cannot find path 'X:\efi\ubuntu\s' because it does not exist. Even though it clearly shows the folder is there,
4524

so I tried putting a space after ubuntu and it still doesn't work, I am completely at a loss, and I really don't want to have to wipe the drive and reinstall Windows can someone PLEASE help. I also tried changing the boot order, but it always goes back, and i tried disabling Ubuntu in the boot order, but it still boots to the GNU Grub screen.Sorry about the HUGE pictures.

No problem it happens.

then I tired the old fixmbr fixboot in command prompt which didn't work it said access denied
Due to the fact that it requires a OS boot disk to preform this action. Can not be done from with in Windows.

Like the video states use Command Prompt with Admin you are using Power Shell.

Now can you still access Windows? What version of Windows?

When I right click the start menu it doesn't give me the option to use command prompt only powershell with admin. I'll try using command prompt by going through run. I am relly hoping thats the problem becuase this is really annoying.

You sir are a genius, it worked using command prompt. TBH I thought command prompt and powershell were the same thing. Obviously I was wrong. Oh and I was able to switch powershell in the start menu back to command prompt.

Glad the hear that it worked.

Microsoft is trying to make Power Shell the replacement for Command Prompt.

Which we can see really work well:whistle: (sarcasm).

Do you consider this solved?
