Getting rid of GRUB on a partition (NOT MBR)
Stupidly, I had GRUB install itself in the MBR _and_ another partition. Now, it is on /dev/hde1 ( (hd0,0) my windows XP partition) and /dev/hde2 ( (hd0,1) my linux /boot partition)

I can no longer get into windows! Whenever I get to the bootloader menu, I select my windows partition to boot, but when I hit enter, it goes right back to the GRUB bootloader. Basically, I am in an infinite loop trying to get into windows.

I have tried numerous things to solve this issue:

fdisk /mbr

None of which work.

The "dd if=/dev/hde1(and 2) bs=512 count=1" printouts all have something with "GRUB" in it.

Please help me get rid of GRUB! If you need any additional information, please feel free to ask.

Boot into the XP install CD and do the recovery console. Then do fixboot. I think that'll fix it.
