To boot into windows, after removing the linux from a dual boot system, without a windows CD

But, if windows cd is not available currently for you, then u can follow the following procedure, to temporarily login into windows. This has to be done every time, if you don’t restore the mbr.


1. grub> rootnoverity (hd0,0)
2. grub> makeactive
3. grub> chainloader +1
4. grub> boot

Now, you will be logged into the windows OS.
Note that, this works temporarily. This has to be done every time you start the system, until the mbr is restored with the Recovery Console.
