Full Version: Grub And Partitions

I would like to remove Linux from a dual-boot system with Windows 2000. The boot manager is grub. While the FAQ recommends removing the master boot record with "fdisk /mbr", I have read elsewhere that that can cause problems, and I'd rather not take the risk. If I change the grub.conf file on the /boot partition to always boot Windows, is it safe to delete the other Linux partitions? I would retain /boot (but wipe out the root partition).

I would just go ahead with the /fdisk mbr

It doesnt remove the master boot record it simply restores the windows one.

Thanks. I did the equivalent of "fdisk /mbr" (through a utility) and got the desired result.
