How to uninstall Linux without affecting windows boot loader??
 
I used to format the linux partitions to remove a distro (usually through another disto's installation wizard)to uninstall linux...

But this time i wanna remove linux completely (Please dont get any wrong ideas, I am a Linux lover like all of you....), the problem is, formatting the linux partitions will destroy the grub record which will make windows inaccessible.... so what can i do so that windows is not affected??

Thanx in advance!!

You'll have to reinstall the Windows boot loader. If you boot with an XP install disc and enter the recovery console and use fixmbr, it should remove Grub from the MBR.
