I installed Linux mint in my Lenova Ideapad z500 (windows 8 preinstalled without any dvd). Linux mint asked me to create a partition on the hard drive where windows 8 is also installed. I did. Linux mint worked fine but I could not boot my Windows 8!
Then I used few boot utilities and I was successful to start Windows 8. While I was in windows I deleted the linux mint partition. But now when I try to boot windows 8, the boot process begins and I get an error message that something went wrong and the boot process must restart...and the loop repeats again and again!
Lenovo has a one key recovery...I tried it but it does not work! I used Ubuntu live CD and made a picture (attached) of my different partitions of my hard drive. I marked the two partitions in red which were together before installing linux mint.
My questions is can I merge this two partitions? Will it solve the problem? I will appreciate any suggestions very much.
