Thread: removing the bootloader

    removing the bootloader

    Hey everyone,

    Long time no see! Anyway, I want to remove the dual boot option for my desktop and take RH off of my second drive. Don't worry I'm not a born-again M$ lacky. I just need some more free space to do a format and reinstall of my desktop system. It hasn't been done on this PC since I got it!

    Anyway I just wanted to make sure that booting from a MS bootdisk and doing a fdisk /mbr would remove GRUB but also make it so that I will still be able to get into Winblows. I guess I just need to hear from people I trust!

    Thanx,
    Ryan

    Awesome thanx guys!

    Don't worry... one of the reasons I'm doing this is because I will have a second Linux box up and running in the next weekend or so.

    Thanx,
    Ryan
