Deleted linux partition on a dual boot system...made mistake?
I am new to linux. I think I made a mistake and now I am getting a GRUB LOADER Error 21. I had a dual boot system of winxp and ubuntu. On a single hdd, winxp had 80gig partition with linux 30gig partition. After many months, I decided I wanted to remove ubuntu and through partition magic in winxp I deleted the main linux partition, not noticing the smaller swap linux partition. Now I get the error 21. Can I salvage my system without having to reformat the entire drive? What should I do now? Thanks in advance for your help.
