2 grub2 basic, basic questions.
I am pondering installing linux along side my xp on sda1. My bios will only let me install grub2 in sda1, But wonder, if linux drive goes missing (breaks or take to work), will grub menu fail to load and lock me out of windows xp. This might be true for grub1, but of grub2?
Also, I don't see a simple way to uninstall grub and return control to ntbtldr. This should be built into grub itself, I would think.
To recap, if grub2 is worth a nickel, it will boot no matter which OS is missing or corrupt, into the present or working OS. And uninstalling, should be a grub menu item. Perhaps, this is possible. If so, I will continue to install linux on main desktop, if not, my better judgement says keep it on kids computers only.
