      Thanks I will have to check into that. I am not sure of the syntax for
      restoring the MBR on ME. It needs it right now I have about 60 % of the
      F:\ partition removed as I have format running on that. When it is gone I
      will see what ME looks like. Problem is that computer is not on line and I
      think I can download GParted to this computer and put it on a flash drive
      and run it on the ME computer from the USB port. Is that possible?

      I forgot something: if you want to get rid of your bootloader you will
      have to restore / create a Windows generic MBR.

      You can do that probably with the ME installer/repair CD. But e.g.
      SuperGRUB bootdisk will do a Windows MBR too, albeit under (ironic)

      If I remember correctly the Windows shell command is fdisk /fixmbr on
      Win98SE, it is fdisk /mbr on WinXP, so you will have to check for ME
      what the correct syntax is.
