Recovering Windows boot after deleting the Linux partitions

So you tried Linux in dual-boot with your Windows installation and after you deleted the Linux partition(s) your Windows won't boot anymore.
There is a simple fix for that, you have to just re-install your Windows boot-loader.

Windows XP:

  2. Start the recovery/repair console (not the repair installation).
  3. Type
    Code:
    fixmbr.exe
    and press Enter.
  4. Reboot.

Windows Vista/7:

You are yet to get it all

There was a period of around 12 years, I used Windows-based system, even a HTC handheld with Windows installed. I thought, and perhaps think even now, that Microsoft treats you as a teenager and act like a 'big bro' which is good when your primary business is not with devices. Linux, on the other hand, gives you more credit than Windows do. The main reason of my being with Windows platform was I focused on productivity, keeping aside my self customized environment.

Nowadays I work

/dev/dsp permissions

Fixed sound for my regular users (sound worked fine for root in KDE). Was a simple matter of adding user to group audio, which I did through KUser.

Fixed disappearing eth0... maybe?

Posted 03-30-2009 at 03:43 PM by shannonbay

I added the following lines to /etc/rc.d/rc.modules:
Code:
alias eth0 tg3
modprobe tg3
Will see whether that works - eth0 has stayed put through two reboots.

Not much success with the graphics adapter yet. Got it from here:

Things you can do using Linux, but impossible on Windows

Here is a compiled list from a LinuxQuestion posting (will be update accordingly):

6. Surf the internet, download files, pick up email without fear of the computer becoming infected with viruses, malware, etc. Linux - yes. Windows - it is possible to run as limited user which can limit malmare, but from my experience, it is difficult to use a Windows system as a limited user, and most people probably don't.

5. Ressurect old computer and use it as firewall, server, etc....
