i need to uninstall debian coz i am selling it and i installed grub to my main hardrive which has windows and i cleaned out and reformatted my slave drive then when i rebooted Error 17 theni reinstalled debian and know i need to uninstall it coz i am selling it to a total computer noob and they want windows and want it to rebot like and other computer with win
once you have uninstalled/removed debian, boot from windows xp cd choose recovery console at dos prompt type fixmbr and press enter.if using a win 9x cd at the prompt type fdisk/mbr . that should get windows up & running again
ok i have a illegal version of windows for starts and i have no win xp cd, and how do i remove the debian
here's how to make a boot floppy in xp
1. Place diskette in the computer.
2. Open My Computer and right click the A: drive and click Format.
3.In the Format window check Create an MS-DOS startup disk.
4. Click Start
typing fdisk at the prompt will give you a list of options just make your choice & go. to restore mbr just type in fdisk/mbr or fixmbr
hope this helps
