    Please help! Activated Linux SubSytem, now can't get windows


    Like the title says,

    I activated the Linux Subsystem on Windows 10 and when I clicked on Reboot Now, it boots right into grub now as if I installed a copy of linux and the grub bootloader..

    I would like NOT to lose all my files, I know I can use a live image to get into it and save the files, just a pain in the ass using this computer for burning images to usb.
