    Mixing the MBR and removing Linux's GRUB without a dvd


    hey guys

    I recently installed windows 8 using the "windlows 8 upgrade assistant", install went fine. got into windows 8, but it never replaced my MBR, which currently holds an installation of a linux bootloader known as "grub"

    All guides point to having an installation dvd. to boot repair, then repair the mbr with a command in command line

    I need another solution, since ive installed using the upgrade assistant, i dont have a dvd
