Mandrake Boot Manager

I have a windows partition and mandrake partition. Mandrake made a boot manager to switch between the two and it worked fine. Now I formated the mandrake partition and combined it with my windows partition, but the boot manager is still there even though I formated the partition! Anyone know how to get rid of the manager?

Use a Win boot disk, then type fdisk /mbr - that should sort you out.
