ok so im a newbie at linux. i installed mandrake 9 about 6 months ago & played around with it a good bit, but didnt learn enough.
now im selling my comp to a friend and building a new one. i run win2000 and dual boot with linux. so i deleted the linux partitions through windows and now the hd is all fixed up, my only problem is the boot OS selection comes up when i start my comp and tries to boot into linux (when it times out) and then stops doing everything when it finds out linux isnt there. i THOUGHT that when i deleted all linux partitions the boot loader would go byebye..and i was wrong. so how in the world do i get rid of the boot selector so that it will boot straight into win2000 like it did before i installed linux? i dont want my friend to have to select windows everytime his comp starts up. (That time out stuff when you select the OS is a pain!! but im not smart enough to fix it).
i saw that some posts said to use a win boot disk...but win2k doesnt have boot disks. is it possible to do it any way though the mandrake cd's that i used to install it?
by the way, im gonna install linux on my new pc again and give another shot at learning it. i finally got a book
any help is welcomed.
