    Hi and Welcome !

    Why do want to remove Grub? Are you planning to install other Linux distro or boot loader? There are a lot of ways to remove Grub. Boot up Fedora from Hard disk or use its LiveCD/USB and execute this command in Terminal :
    Code:
    su -
    dd if=/dev/null of=/dev/sda bs=446 count=1
    Above command will remove GRUB from MBR.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    no, I have fedora and not any other operating system.
    just remove grub.

    Code:
    su -
    dd if=/dev/null of=/dev/sda1 ds=512 count=1 
    
    # dd if=/dev/null of=/dev/sdX bs=446 count=1
    
    That doesn't work. You need to use /dev/zero

    forgive my English.
    Thanks for your answer.

    i love fedora.

    If you remove GRUB, you won't be able to boot up Fedora. As I asked earlier, why do you want to remove GRUB?

    You are executing wrong command.
    Code:
    su -
    dd if=/dev/null of=/dev/sda bs=446 count=1
