Hey all

I've just removed all linux partitions off the HD because i was runing out of space on my XP partition.

Now it just boots to a shell (grub>) and i dont know how to fix the MBR to load windows again. Any help would be appreciated on how to resolve the issue with out loosing all my files

This is why dual booting is a bad thing.

You will have to use your install cd for XP and use the recovery tool and re-write the mbr.

Searching google I found alot of answers for this.
