    Help urgently needed!!!

    I was just wondering if someone knew how to appropriatly uninstall a RH 9.0 distro from a system which has windows XP. The problem began when I decided to uninstall RH 9.0 from my computer, which used to dual-boot into RH or Windows XP. I used Magic Partition's boot-up disk to re-format the HDD which contained the RH 9.0 distro, but when I re-started my computer it didn't boot into Windows XP, but it just showd me this prompt: "Grub>". I need to get rid of this and make my computer boot into Windows XP. Does anyone know how to do this???

    Well you can try this at your own risk..

    Boot from a bootdisk for DOS 622 or Win9x (

    Once you get to a DOS prompt you can use the command prompt.

    fdisk /mbr

    Risky if you dont know what you are doing.

    When installing in a dual boot, you can choose to boot Linux from a boot disk to
    avoid this problem in the future.

    Or you could just maybe repair the Boot Sector if you have you OS disks?

    This is an illustrated guide, just scroll down to the section on Recovery Console.
