8554Re: [NTO] removing second OS from HD
- Nov 16, 2009Thanks 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.
