    removing LILO from boot

    hey all
    i recently put on tiny linux onto my system and decided it wasnt for me
    i tried uninstalling it but that didnt work so i put in my old msdos disks which formatted my disk but still LILO is asking if i want to boot linux
    is there any way i can get rid of this annoyance?
    thanx

    Hey,

    Type this at your prompt: c:\fdisk /mbr

    This will remove the LInuxLOader from your main boot record

    It sounds like your bootup files are corrupt or missing, or your FAT table is screwed up.

    What is the info from fdisk?
    (ie: what's your primary and logic partitions?)

    Did you make linux a seperate partition or did you let the installer create it?
