    Removing External drive with Ubuntu OS but no drive letter designation


    I have a wierd problem that most of the suggestions seem not to work.
    I have a HP computer with Vista basic installed at factory with no disc sent with computer. I then added an external drive on which I installed Ubuntu OS as the primary boot drive. This was needed while I was learning and using Asterisk. Now I do not need the drive which no longer seems to have a letter designation or Ubuntu OS but cannot seem to be able to use System Recovery. Near as I can tell, I need to reset the Master Boot Record back to Vista only but seem unable to do so as I recieved no disks with the Computer.
    Any suggestions. I am not extremely skilled at computer technical stuff so please assume I am an idiot if responding.
