    Dual boot Error after install


    I recently installed Mint 11 alongside Windows 7 Premium Home edition on an Acer Aspire D250.

    Prior to this installation I was running Mint inside Windows 7. Something must have been wrong with the install because when I went to uninstall it with Windows remove programs it was not listed. What I did was delete the folder and any other folders I could find that referenced Mint.

    Now when I boot the computer I have the usual screen where I either select to run Windows 7 or Mint. If I select Windows I am confronted with another screen asking me if I wish to run Windows or Mint (the one I attempted to uninstall). If I select Mint on this screen I am of course given an error specifying a wubildr.mbr is missing or corrupt.

    Question is, how do I resolve i.e. eliminate that second window that comes up without messing up my dual boot operation.

    I have a similar situation. It does not seem to hurt anything (other than a second or two of productivity time). Might suggest just leaving it as is unless it is hurting something. If so, then try Jonathan's input.
