    Thank you, I succeeded in installing dual boot windows10 and Ubuntu 16.10, now i want to remove the Ubuntu because i want to downgrade to lower version of Ubuntu, may i know what are the steps???

    • Matei Cezar says:

      Backup data, if any, boot-up Ubuntu ISO image, delete previous Ubuntu partition|s and reinstall the system.

    • Kito Pang says:

      Go to windows partition manager. Then delete the partition you allocated for Ubuntu. From there, install the older version of Ubuntu using the same steps you used originally.

    I’ve already tried to repair Grub with boot repair, it execute perfectly but after I restart It, again boots into Windows.

    • Matei Cezar says:

      Is your motherboard UEFI based? If that’s the case, you must go to UEFI settings and change boot order from the menu.

  4. Rider says:

    I have completed all the above steps but still when I my PC restart it take a lot of time and finally if I switch it off manually, then no GRUB is popping up. Please Help
