deleting linux paritions from windows --> the computer isn't working
one of my friends wanted to delete linux from her computer & she has deleted her linux partitions in partition magic ( from windows ) and then she has added some of the free space to her windows parititions then when she restarted her computer the windows wasn't coming up any more ( it doesn't boot )
when she restart her computer the onlything that shows up is : grub
and she can't also type anything
she has activated her partitions with a bootable cd but the windows is not still booting .
then she deleted something names MBR form her computer , and now when she turn on her computer nothing shows up ( just a black page )
Please help her

You can boot with your Windows installation CD, enter the recovery console (with F2 I think), then type the command

he would have included that functionality in fdisk, back with DOS 5.00.
I hope the above fix for the MBR is enough to get her back going,
but, if not, it may be time to reinstall windows from scratch.
Other recovery console commands are fixboot and fixmbr
