for fedro problem


for fedora problem


I installed Fedoraon my pc yesterday. This PC has 2 internal hard drives and comes with Windows xp and fedoa.

I installed Fedora on the second drive and told it to boot from the first drive. Yesterday it was working fine. I could select Fedora or Windows from the boot menu and they both worked. This morning when I switched it on I got an error message saying "GRUB Geom Error" and it won't do anything.

My System is unuseable.how to remove fedora and my system is working porply with xp.any idea please give solution urgently.

If you really want to remove Fedora, boot up your XP install CD, wait for the options install or repair, hit R for repair, then in the recovery console, run:
Code:
fixmbr
Then delete the Fedora partion.
You might be able to rescue both XP & Fedora by reinstalling GRUB, but I'm not sure how to do that.
