    cant boot XP after delete Linux


    I have XP and Linux installed on a Dell laptop. Now I use PatitionMagic to delete Linux Patition and format it to FAT32 to use with XP. However, now I cant boot XP. I saw the line "GRUB" appears on the screen and it just stops there.

    Did I delete my boot loader? and what should I do now. I'm new user with linux. Thank you

    What you need to do is boot into Microsoft Recovery Console from the XP CD. in there, type fixmbr (iirc) and that will reload ntldr to just boot XP properly.
