hi there,

you erase the data at MBR - Master Boot Record.
if you have already an OS running, you need to install again a boot loader and everything is safe.
windows, afaik, erases the MBR by default. your grub is complete gone after a windows installation.
i understood that you wanted to take grub out. so, fdisk /mbr will clear that for you.
