GRUB Problems


Ok, so I decided that i was going to put my copy of Mandrake 9.2 on another computer (It was on a slave hdd). I removed the hdd now i cant boot into XP. I have tried to use a Linux Live! cd but to no avail. Could someone help me out here? I desperately need to get access to XP for work reasons.

Thank You,
James Patterson
