After using Mandrake Linux for a while, I decided to delete it from the current computer. I deleted the partition, and formatted it to NTFS. Now, whenever I turn on the computer, I get the blue linux window asking me which OS i want to boot to mad.gif , with linux always being highlighted first. It gives me a countdown, and if I dont get there in time to select windows, it just goes blank, huh.gif since linux is deleted. I was wondering if anyone could help me with getting rid of that window, as it is really annoying, and requires me to sit there while it boots. Thanks tongue.gif

Another method is to boot your XP install CD and select recovery mode. Then run fixmbr.
