Removed a graphics card from machine that dual boots Windows Vista & Ubuntu.

When using onboard graphics, the machine boots & works flawlessly in Ubuntu with the new HDTV.

However, after the GRUB menu, Windows does not show anything yet it boots because the hard drive light is stable after activity & when I do a hard reset, it asks me how to boot Windows (safe mode, command prompt, etc.)

Any thoughts or suggestions much appreciated.

Try booting into Safe Mode or VGA mode.

If you can get Windows to boot either way remove your PCI graphics drivers and install whatever is appropriate for your on-board video. If you can't uninstall the drivers in Safe Mode then try VGA

Thanks, should have stated yes, I am able to boot into Safe Mode. I'll try that option and see if I can post my results. Thanks in advance – miamisoftware Mar 15 '11 at 3:03
