  1. Hi Everyone... I recently posted this in the Windows Thread

    Well, I got up this morning and attempted to remove Linux from my computer. I thought I would be able to just delete that partition from my hard drive. Yes, I should have researched this first. Now I am unable to use my computer. When I power on, I get a "grub error." I tried to just boot again and press "F10" to load my recovery software, but that didn't work. It just continues to boot and I receive that error. And it gets worse...I don't have a Windows XP installation disk. Everything came pre-installed on my computer. I know there is a lot of information about this topic. I'm not really techie at this like this (obviously since I deleted the partition ). So, I really didn't understand what the other threads were saying. Could someone PLEASE give me detailed instructions on how to fix my computer? I just want Windows back!!

    Thanks in advance!


    I wasn't getting much response there, so I thought I would try here. One person said I would have to go out and purchase a Windows XP CD. I really don't want to do that. Is there anyway I could use the Linux cds I made too get everything working correctly?

    Oh...I'm using Debian Linux.
