grub error 21 stage1.5
I'm of course really new to Linux. I have a Win XP system that installed a second HD as a slave. I started the install of Suse 9.3 from DVD and everything went fine. Iím fairly sure that I set it correctly when I told it to install using the new HD not the Windows drive. I canít remember if I told it anything different about where to load the boot system, but I donít think I changed anything from the setup. I did tell it that I wanted the default boot to start Win XP. The install went just fine, then it rebooted, and all I got was the grub error 21 stage1.5. I tried to run the repair function, but that did nothing.
I then removed the second drive and tried to just return to Win XP and I still get the same error. I understand grub changes my MBR but I donít know how to just get my old MBR back to working. I donít want to mess with Linux until I guess I learn a bit more, but for now, I need to get Win XP back up asap. I ran a utility that gives me a Win XP operating system from my CD, and it shows my C drive intact with all the files, and my D partition that holds my restore data. I have the Suse 9.3 disks in both DVD and 5CD versions. Is there something I can do from them that can remove the grub system from the MBR?
Thanks for the help.
