How to fix MBR for Windows

📅 2015-Dec-23 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 📚 Archive

Problem

I had installed Windows 10 successfully. While messing around with my other Linux partitions, a partition delete went awry and on booting I was dropped into a GRUB rescue prompt. What I wanted was the Master Boot Record to be restored to boot into Windows 10.

Solution

$ bootrec /rebuildbcd
$ bootrec /fixmbr
$ bootrec /fixboot
$ exit

After restarting I was able to boot into Windows 10.
