    need a little help with grub


    hey guys.
    i had a dual boot set up with FC2 and winXP.
    i reformatted my linux drive from within windows (getting rid of linux for more storage space)
    now when i boot it tries to load grub and then just sits there. it never actually gets into the grub menu's

    is there a "safe mode" of sorts for grub that will allow me to fix this?
    or should i just wipe my MBR clean and then try to fix windows?

    Unhappy

    -->
    Boot with your Win XP install disk, type "R" to get you into repair mode.
    Once you are at a command line, type "fixmbr".

    or

    If you have a floppy drive and a Win98 startup disk, you can boot with that, once you get to the A: prompt, type

    fdisk /mbr

    And Grub will be gone
