Okay, here's the deal, I need help. If anyone has anything that can help me, please, post it, it'll be appreciated. I installed Suse along with Windows XP on a my laptop. They both worked fine. But, as time passed, I began to use Suse less and less, then the time came when my Windows' partition ran low on space, so I deleted the Suse partiton and changed it over to the NTFS format for Windows to use. All went good...... until, I hit the power button without thinking. I forgot to run the simple fdisk /fix command! So, when I went to turn the laptop back on the only thing that will come up is "GRUB" on a black screen. And I've tried to use a boot floppy, but it didn't work, it returned an "I/O Error". One of two things could've happened, one, simply a bad floppy, or two, I'm using an external floppy drive (maybe the PC can't read that).
So, since my laptop does have an internal CD-ROM drive, can I just burn the boot files to a CD, and simply boot from the CD? Plus, will it make a difference if I use the boot files from SP2, when my laptop is running on SP1 (do they both use the same files)?
