    Hi guys,

    sorry to bore you with another linux uninstall post. here is the situation.

    linux was default and win98 secondary boot.
    i deleted linux partitions on a second hdd with Partition magic 8. :dead: :speechless:
    on reboot, grub kicks in. win98 cd won;t boot off cdrom drive, win 98 boot disk won't boot, and red hat boot disk won't boot. dilemma.

    i hope everyone understood that. my question is how to get rid off grub, or firstly get to a dos command line to fdisk mbr.

    if anyone has any ideas, they would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,

    Fudleone

    boot up with a win 98 boot disk. if you dont have one, it can be downloaded from www.bootdisk.com

    once at dos prompt: type "fdisk/mbr"

    reboot, its that easy.

    You need a space fdisk /mbr

    it will work - and should work also if you leave CD-ROM as first boot - so long as floppy gets a look in as secondary boot device and has a boot disk all should be well - remember you have to press a key to boot from CD....
