    I have a laptop with Ubuntu 9.04 and XP running with grub dual boot.
    9.04 just does not run right on the laptop - video and RAM issues - so I want to remove grub and then wipe out the linux partition.

    If I run fdisk -mbr -- will that disable grub and the laptop boots into XP?
    Or .... what is the best way to have the laptop boot into XP?

    Thanks

    Hank,

    Have a look at this thread FIXMBR Remove dual boot. I'm sure it should also apply to Ubuntu...

    Shazam!

    Thanks for the link to that thread. I didn't see it when I went searching for answers

    Ran recovery console and FIXMBR and rebooted the laptop and it came up into XP.
    Worked great.
    Blew away the Linux partitions and it's all fine now.

    Hank
