Ubuntu – Remove Ubuntu from dual-boot system


I had Ubuntu 15.10 and Windows 10 on the same drive. I wanted to remove Ubuntu so I did following steps:

  • go to disk manager and remove two Ubuntu partitions and add free space to windows partition.
  • run Windows USB installer with command line ant type: bootrec.exe /fixmbr

The thing is that Ubuntu boot options were not removed from my BIOS. I had to manually switch it to Windows boot because the computer was starting with a GRUB command line.

Is there a way to safely remove these bot options?

With the new EFI system the windows and Linux bootmanager are separated. To use the windows boot manager as the default one instead of grub, just select it as the default EFI boot manager in the BIOS settings and you'll automatically boot into Windows by default
