    Set your BIOS to boot from CD or DVD drive
    -Put your Windows installation disc into your CD or
    DVD drive
    -Boot up your computer and start from CD
    -Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
    -Click Repair your computer.
    -Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
    -In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
    -Type Bootrec.exe /FixMbr, and then press ENTER.
    Reboot your computer

    did not work

    but just solve it a minute ago


    - Click start
    - Type: cmd
    - Right-click cmd when it appears under Programs
    - Click Run As Administrator

    Once the prompt is up type bcdedit.exe
    this will list all of the OS that start up in Windows Boot Manager

    Once you have this list you use the command bcdedit.exe/delete file name
    example: bcdedit.exe/delete {802d5e32-0784-11da-bd33-000476eba25f}

    but thanks

    Glad you fixed it..

    But for those who want to fix there MBR without Windows disc.. you can also use Rescatux (SuperGrubDisk)

    Edit the boot.ini file, you'll get something like this:

    [boot loader]
    timeout=3
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\debian
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="debia n" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
    c:\debian.mbr="Ubuntu"
    Delete (after a backup):

    c:\debian.mbr="Ubuntu"
    Otherwise, with a live CD as Ubuntu:

    "sudo ms-sys --mbr /dev/sda"

    If you prefer you can try also using freedos with a "fixmbr"!

    We're in 2018 and you are still using Ubuntu 8.04 from 2008? I guess your quite out of luck if you want to "upgrade" to 8.10.
    First number in Ubuntu release is year, second number is month so 8.04 is April 2008...

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair
