One line Grub problem!!! serious!!!


Hello,
I have installed Windows XP along with Fedora core 6. I removed Fedora core 6 because I couldn't

add/remove packages (I REMOVED FEDORA THROUGH DELETING THE TWO PARTITIONS OF IT FROM WINDOWS XP DESK

MANAGEMENT). Now when I start my Computer, Grub one line command version (or something like that as

mentioned in it, itself) is loaded. I cannot boot the Windows XP but by writing these three

commands:

rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1
boot

I want to remove Grub that when the PC is started it should load Windows XP. WHAT SHOULD I DO BROTHERS??

When you removed the Fedora partitions, you removed the GRUB files. If you just want Windows, then you can restore the mbr by booting from the Windows CD--rescue mode--and running "fixmbr"

What was the problem with Fedora? If we can get Linux working for you, is that an option?

Ahem---I posted this before I saw that you were closing it.
Anyone with 28,000 posts should be able to use "OpenSource Telepathy" (TM) to know when a slow-typing mortal is composing an eloquent response to something.
So there.......

PS: I AM sitting in the corner. That's where my spouse keeps me. 10 square feet, computer, heater, and a feeding tube.
