The goal was to successfully install Windows 10 upgrade.
System configuration : Dell Inspiron 3537, i5 4th gen processor, 6GB RAM, 1TB HDD, 2GB AMD Graphics.
Before install : I have a Dual-boot system with Ubuntu GNOME alongside my genuine Windows 8.1.
I assumed there would be a problem with the bootmanager so I decided to remove the Linux from my system. Followed the instructions given in the how-to-geek website tutorial(linked at the end).
Accordingly,I deleted 2 partitions 65GB and 2GB(I guess swap partion). Screenshot added to the gdrive folder
Next,I booted into Windows Repair from Disc and entered in cmd:
After removal the problem began,(gdrive link with screenshots given at the end)
The first boot screen:
GNU GRUB version 2.02~beta2-9ubuntu1.2 Minimal Bash-like line editing is supported. For the first word,TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions. grub>exit Boot succeeded-info
The second boot screen:
Boot Manager (windows)
The third boot screen:
Windows 8.1/10 boot up (Dell logo)
Then the system finally starts Windows.
I installed Windows 10 upgrade,still the same problem.
Please guide me through removing Linux entirely (removing grub) from the system. I want to clean-install Windows 10 of which I know the process how-to-do-it.
Do I remove the EFI partition too?
Do I just directly perform a clean install?
Please help. Thanks a lot!
