I had my laptop loaded with XP and Linux9.0 on two partitions. From windows XP, I deleted and formatted Linux partition.
When I rebooted the laptop pc, I found myself facing the GRUB that I though was deleted with linux partition.
I need to get my XP boot so I can access windows....

Please Help...

Boot using the Windows XP CD. Choose to repair your system.

Then, in the recovery console, use the following command :

fixboot.

It should do it.

The problem is that cleaning a partition does not replace the boot loader on the disk. So, no, grub was not deleted (or at least not the part stored in the boot loader).
