Fedora UnInstall to 98


Well, after messing around a bith with Fedora, I decided it was slowing my system down too much.

I ran the recovery disk, and fdisked the partition. I ran the disk and it said done...

Now when I restarted my computer, I get a grub> prompt. What the hell is it, and how do I make it boot dinwos?

put a windows boot floppy in the drive and when you get to the A:> prompt type :
fdisk /mbr

You can also download emergency boot CD:

and use it to recover the windows master boot record

Well, I dont see A:> at all, all I see is grub. My computer comes with an emergency one too -- but thats not working.

I think it may be something with the partitions... possibly?

put your disk in, at the grub prompt type
Code:
GRUB> chainloader (fd0)+1
GRUB> boot

well then you must not have the A: drive set to the first boot device in your BIOS .
