I have uninstalled Linux Mint by deleting it from windows 7 disk partition. previously I have had both windows 7 and Linux mint (dual boot loader). I inserted windows 7 DVD and restarted my laptop(Samsung Notebook).It displays the following message: error: no such partition Grub Rescue> I have tried using the boot keys F1, F12 but it wouldn't show the WINDOWS boot screen.what should i do to make it boot from CD/DVD as I am not able to access BIOS screen?Any suggestions as to how should i boot it from DVD?

  • Did you change the boot order in the BIOS and set the DVD drive as the first boot device? – Karan Jun 12 '15 at 17:46
  • No. I cant seem to access BIOS upon boot due to the grub rescue error. previously i hadn't done any BIOS setting,simply deleted Linux partition from window 7 and restarted laptop with DVD to boot . Can u suggest any way to access it or to restore grub loader? so i can reset bios settings and than install master window boot loader? – Dcoder Jun 12 '15 at 17:53
  • BIOS can be accessed if you're quick enough to press the appropriate key after booting the system. Grub comes into the picture only later and cannot prevent you from accessing the BIOS. – Karan Jun 12 '15 at 18:06
  • I got access to my BIOS with the F2 key and my laptop plugged-in . battery removed. – Dcoder Jun 13 '15 at 4:07
  • @Dcoder now read karan's first comment "Did you change the boot order in the BIOS and set the DVD drive as the first boot device?" – barlop Jun 13 '15 at 9:19
