Default I did it now.. New mini & i killed IT - 12-21-2008, 04:14 AM

OK HERES what i did . My mini 9 came with ubuntu.. but i have to use windows for what i bout it to be used..
i went to partitions & insteand of making anew partition i deleted it by accident.. as soon as i did that the computer
froze. so now all i get at start up is a MBR FA: and can not type any comnands. i tried just booting windows from a usb optical drive and ubuntu neither one will read.. all i get is
PXE-E61 media test failure
PXE-M0F exiting PXE ROM
INVALID PARTITION TABLE

a USB Hard drive with ubuntu live on it did the same thing.. so
im out of ideas on this..
ive reformatted the external usb drive and tried again.. no luck

what else can i do.. any ideas?

It sounds as though the USB drive with Windows on it is either not bootable, or you are not selecting it during boot. Hit 0 (zero) when the initial splash screen appears and select USB drive. If that doesn't work, do it again, but this time select removable drive (some USB drives show up here in the wrong place). If neither work, then your Windows USB drive is suspect.
