    GRUB is removed, error 15

    Hello all,

    I was going to install debian on my laptop which had ubuntu and winxp. the boot order was ubuntu first then winxp. at the beginning of installation of debian i had to set up partitions. by mistake i erased the linux partion. then debian could not find the root partion and didn't continue to install. the bad thing is that when i restarted the laptop, it cannot find the GRUB and does not boot the system. the error message is:

    GRUB loading, please wait...
    error 15

    Can someone help me please to restor the winxp?

    Thanks,
    Ali

    From the recovery console of the xp instalation cd, type:
    fixmbr

    This should reinstall the windows bootloader

    Do what it says in the second post, rather than the first (it's faster and safer).
