    Question Uninstall Dapper


    Duel booting dapper with w2k Grub is the loader. Dapper is the default OS. I have installed dapper on another [second] machine. I want to remove dapper from the duel and leave w2k.

    Is there a way to do this?

    To get rid of GRUB, boot with a Windows emergency boot disk and run: fdisk /mbr

    ...or

    Boot with the Windows XP installation CD and from the recovery console type: fixmbr

    Doing either one should rewrite the MBR allowing you to reboot directly into Windows.

    You can remove Ubuntu from the drive by deleting or reformatting the Linux partitions.
