Exclamation GRUB Does not load (Lack of space)

Hello all,

I have two hard driver. C and G, C has windows on it, G has nothing but backup. G used to have fedora installed on it, but after formating it, it has nothing but the computer still loads in GRUB, in which I have to manually load windows.

Yesterday night I consumped all of the G drive space, now grub freezes on GRUB screen whenever loading. Now, isnt the grub suppose to be inside of the C drive (since I formated the G drive before, via windows).

I appreciate any help or questions on how to remove the GRUB screen or how would I go and access the G drive to delete things I do not use.

I tried to access the drive via live cd ,but gives me read only drive error..

Thanks alot,

Since you're no longer running Linux, why not just let Windows fix the problem?

I.e., Boot into Windows, and -- from the Windows command prompt -- do either a "fixmbr" or "fdisk /mbr." (Note that both those are from memory, and may be wrong. The "fixmbr" was, I think, only available from the NT and XP "Repair" command console.)
