Unhappy Only grub left..?


Dear somebody

I am panicing, I had help to uninstall linux for a dual boot... Anyway, I got the computer back in GRUB mode... when I turn my computer on I have GRUB when I write

I get (hd0,0) empty...

Can somebody help me, I need to clear the harddisk and do a complete new installation.

Unfortunatly I do not have acces to any linux cd or floppys (not that I probbaly can read anyof those anyway...)

Get a diskfrom bootdisk.com (Win ME disks work well..)
boot off of it (change the bios config to boot off the floppy first)
And type in
fdisk /mbr
That will get rid of grub, next just type fdisk and make yourself a new paritition (your windows will still be there, unless you overwrote it, fdisk /mbr resets to the main windows bootloader)

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
