    Cleaning up removal of Dual Boot with Ubuntu

    I set up Ubuntu in dual boot with Win 10 and tried to replace it with Mint, which failed at installation.
    I then had a "grub rescue" prompt regardless of what I tried.

    I fixed the mbr by booting from Win 7 .iso and running Bootrec /fixmbr.

    I can now boot into Win 10 OK.
    However, when I first installed Win 10 and dual boot Ubuntu, the Windows 10 selection screen used an icon for Win10 and for Ubuntu.
    Now the Win10 selection screen is all text, like the original Win 7 screen before Win 10 upgrade. Possibly because I used a Win 7 .iso. I can't find how to get to a dos prompt when booting from Win 10 .iso.
    It is only cosmetic, but can anyone tell me how to restore the Win 10 icon type, please?

    Boot the ISO and on the first screen. Hold down SHIFT + F10 will give you the command prompt

    It is only cosmetic, but can anyone tell me how to restore the Win 10 icon type, please?
    Open Admin Command Prompt and type:
    bcdboot %windir%
