|I had a version of Linux installed on a different partition of my hard drive, which I later deleted (both Linux and the partition), but was left with the Grub loader on my boot sector.|
To get rid of this I tried choosing the Repair option on the XP recovery console (booted from a USB drive as I don't have a CD-ROM on my notepad) then using the commands FIXMBR, FIXBOOT and BOOTCFG /rebuild. However, none of these made any difference.
I read that it's possible to use the FDISK /mbr command from a WIN 98 start up disk to solve my problem, so I got hold of one of these, put it onto a bootable USB drive, set my bios to boot from USB, but from the command prompt I just got the USB drive as C: rather than my notepad's hard drive, so I can't use this FDISK method either to renew my boot sector.
Does anyone know how I can fix this?
PS. Windows works fine btw, just that I have to choose it from the Grub loader every time the laptop starts, and I just want the normal Windows boot loader back.
