WHaou that's crazy :-(

May I ask a question?
Why did you not run [delete] to a VM on your ubuntu?

My wife does not want to use Linux. But, I installed devuan (debian without
systemd) on her new PC, then VirtualBOX and wind8.1 on it. She happy with this
configuration and so I.

For my part I only used Windows for profesional use and alaway let the windows
admin, do there stuff. They just have to give me Putty to acces to servers.

Good Luck for restoring your GRUB2
