I have an HP computer with 80 gb solid state drive with Windows 7 64 bit home edition installed. I had Ubuntu installed as well. It started to create start up issues. The boot order got changed and it defaulted to ubuntu.
I followed these instructions to uninstall Ubuntu
Now I am getting the error that GRUB is missing. I am not a computer programmer so I don’t speak this language. I did have a restore disc I created the day I brought the computer home. A friend helped me image the hard drive and create a restore disc.
When I went to use it today, it does not work. I click to boot from CD on start up and get this error:
“Windows has encountered a problem communicating with a device connected
to your computer.
This error can be caused by unplugging a removable storage device such as an external USB drive while the device is in use, or by faulty hardware such as a hard drive or CD-ROM drive that is failing.
Make sure any removable storage is properly connected and then restart your computer.
Info: An unexpected i/o error has occurred”
I do not know what else to do. I want to restore my computer to Windows 7 only and maintain all operating system and programs on my 80gb solid state drive as always. I just don’t want to deal with Ubuntu anymore. Can anybody help me out further? Is my restore disc bad? If so what do I do?
