get grub rescue> computer wont boot windows xp
Im evidently new to the linux community and I installed Ubuntu 11.04 to my harddrive on an older computer to test it. I dont know if it was a dual boot or not, i got a prompt boot either windows or ubuntu. I wanted to uninstall ubuntu so, i deleted the partition that it was on from windows xp, and didnt reformat the disk space. when i restarted my system the option to enter set up and boot menu is available. The screen after that says, "error: no such partition." grub rescue>
I inserted the live cd and the ubuntu loading screen comes up and it just stays there, its like it can't figure out what to do. I was hoping that would restore it, but I guess not. I read some other thread and since im new to linux and getting my hands dirty with computers, im having trouble making sense of it. could someone who knows what im going through help me?
