Hi so here is the situation.
I had installed 2 OS’s on my machine i.e. Windows XP and Fedora,I wanted to uninstall fedora and at that time dint know how to uninstall it (nor do now) so I formatted that drive( using mouse )which had fedora installed in it through windows XP.
During start up it GRUB appears on my machine giving me the OS choice 1)fedora 2)XP
How do uninstall GRUB ?
Also after this I tried to re-install windows XP but it dint install instead (after the message “Hardware is inspecting your Hardware….” It did nothing ,just screen gone blank) at first I thought it must be an CD issues but after trying with number of Windows XP bootable CD’s it dint work.
Also I tried to create new partition using GParted Live CD but it also failed (showed buffered I/O error etc)
System details incase if needed:
RAM 1gb,160gb SATA hdd,core2duo,mercury MB
something is wrong with my Hard disk (especially MBR or any sector corrupted )
what I want to know
what and where is the exact problem?
How to solve it?
Any additional tips always welcomed..
Please try to elaborate as much as possible.
(Appreciate your time and thanks for reading.)
