How do I completely remove GRUB?


Hello,
I had MEPIS installed on my system and I just used a windows boot disc to format the entire hard drive so that I could take off MEPIS and reinstall Windows 98.

I formatted the whole drive, deleted the partitions, and then reinstalled windows. However, now when I boot, a text line comes up displaying something about GRUB and will not let me continue to windows. How do I completely remove GRUB? Thanks.

Boot with a windows 98 boot disk and type fdisk /mbr. You have to format the grubs first stage loader out of the master boot record.
