Remove GRUB


Hi,

I have a dual boot: XP on first drive and FC3 on second. I've choosen GRUB as boot loader.

Since I will have a Linux server pretty soon :-), I do not need FC3 on the second drive no longer.

Now how can I remove GRUB from the primary drive and get back XP loader? Moreover, you need to know that I have imaged the primary 200gb drive from a 60gb drive one with Norton Ghost.

Thanks in advance

nJ

Do you have the XP installation CD, or was it a pre-installed job?

Did it ever occur to you you may be not the first one with this problem? Peple with common problems should first search LQ, then Google.

Answer to your question.

Hm, I've searched google.com/linux first and LQ and found some answer, but I wasn't sure about my imaged primary drive. The point is, since I've used Ghost, XP boots up like from hybernation. I wonder if that would be of trouble when formatting the mbr, that's why I posted here.

My apologies, however! :-(
