    How do I remove the Ubuntu/grub from a GUID/GPT disk?

    All of the advice I've found regarding this issue seems to be related to MBR, and it doesn't work.

    When you boot what is the boot manager grub?

    1. Download: EasyUEFI. Install then run
    2. Delete all entries related to UBUNTU and move Windows Boot Manager to the top.

    Reboot. If it does not work.
    Next try:
    From Admin Command, run:
    mountvol U: /s
    dir /A /S U:\

    If there's a loader.efi type:
    del /F U:\path\loader.efi ====> Replace the path
    if there's a ubuntu folder, type:
    RD /S /Q "U:\EFI\ubuntu"
    mountvol U:\ /D

    Thx, @topgundcp . The command prompt commands did it.
