One newb's disaster
Well, its not a disaster YET, but I need some serious help.
After wrestling with a dual-boot WinXP/RH7 for awhile, I decided I wanted to eliminate Red Hat altogether and just stick solely with XP.
Impulsive me, I started up ParitionMagic8.0, erased three partitions (they all were linux partitions), and reformatted WindowsXP (I really wanted to start over).
So, at this point, I have three partitions: Primary (With a reinstalled XP, i suppose), another partition with a HD image backup, and another partition I dont quite remember.
So I restore my backup image from another partition, and reboot. But instead of shooting to Windows, it has me at a grub command line with "limited commands."
I think I might have deleted an important partition, /boot. I want to boot to XP. Im about to create a PartitionMagic floppy, but I need help before I continue. How do I boot to Windows? ive deleted all three linux partitions!(/boot, swap, and *, but im NOT TOTALLY SURE)
Please help me!:eek:
You need to restore your MBR. Boot from XP cd and (at the rescue console) type in fixmbr.
