Hi. I finally built my new computer and i want to load linux onto that comp and get if off this 1. On this computer i have it 45gig win xp and 15 gig linux.... I used partition magic to create my partition.... How would i go about deleting the partition... and what would happen... Im just worried that once i get rid of the linux partition when my computer goes to boot up its still going to look for Linux Boot up... not be able to find it and then id be really screwed up. If any 1 with experience could respond to this or IM me on AIM my sn is DaXtreme690 and I am usually on 24/7... thanks
... ok but im a little confused... im on Partition Magic... nad it allows you to delete a partition... i just wannam ake sure that when i delete it... its not gonna screw up my windows part.. and that once its gone windows will boot up fine etc... and no more boot manager
Ok i read a bunch ofthose posts and ummm people who want to do same thing have proglems w/ the loading up of windows... 1 problem is that I dont have the cd on me of win xp... so how would i go about this?
Same situation, different bootloader. You have a bootloader installed in the mbr. Windows is used to being top dog and insists on things being done their way unless tricked by a bootloader that is aware of all filesystems such as grub or lilo.
If you want Windows only, ya gotta wipe it and fix the master boot record to the way Windows wants it to be.
