How is it possible that my PC still reboots after I execute this command


Code:
yum remove grub
Isn't that suppose to remove the bootloader?

I use CentOS 6.2

Regards

It removes the executables that set-up the boot-sector.
It (to the best of my understanding) doesn't undo grubs work.


Cheers,

Systems with Grub usually have a Grub directory in the /lib or /usr/lib directory. Did you check to see if they were removed? That would have no effect on booting.

Hi,

if you really want to clean the mbr, you should read here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...he-mbr-850261/
This worked for me.
