I'm not really a newbie, but thought that this question would fit best in here. I had the genius (not really) idea of installing GRUB2 onto my USB flash drive, then realized that it wasn't such a great idea after all. I reformatted the USB drive and after that my computer failed to boot when it was plugged in (presumably searching the drive for a bootloader that doesn't exist). It does not even get to the BIOS screen unless I unplug my USB.
Then, I tried doing
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdc bs=512 count=1
and I still have the same problem. I'm not really sure what to do at this point.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
