    uninstall problem

    Oh gawd...how should I start.

    A few hours ago, I decided to uninstall Ubuntu. I (thought I had) changed my MBR correctly, deleted my Ubuntu partition and rebooted.

    Grub Error 17

    OK. Live CD. ms-sys -p -m -f /dev/sda

    Reboot.

    Partition table corrupted.

    Live CD

    Test Disk. Fixed NTFS boot.

    Reboot.

    Blinking cursor.

    Now I'm stuck. I don't have a XP install disc with me or any other boot disc.

    Please help me.

    Note: I tried reinstalling Ubuntu before I ran ms-sys. That didn't go so well (didn't install it at all), but I got past the partitioning which mean things might suck for me now (I might have accidentally wiped
    that partition, although I can't be sure.)
