    Question How to recover windows if Grub having some problem


    Hi I am having some problem in my OS.
    I have dual OS in my system(Windows XP, Linux Fedora). Now when I am login to my system, login screen is not showing. Showing some problem in grub.inf.
    I am new to Linux. Few days back same problem occurred and reformatted both XP and Linux again.

    SO can any one help me how to get back windows XP again without formatting.
    I think some problem in grub.inf.

    Boot your PC fron XP bootable disk. Go to repair mode & and write.

    fixmbr
    & press Enter.
    Above command will repair ur bootloader and rewrite NTLDR which will replace GRUB loader of Linux and now you can see only Windows XP in the boot menu.

    Its grub.conf file. Could you post exact error message here?
    Does GRUB Menu appear at startup? Does Linux boot up fine?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
