I have xp and vista dual boot, i never really used vista, i was on xp, and the lights flickerd and my comp turned off when it turned back on it loads but doesnt take me to the grub screen where i can choose what i want to open instead i think it tries to open vista and it just doest work and stays at the bios screen. I deleted the vista partition and it does the same thing. I want to return the boot settings so that it never knew vista was there http://www.istartedsomething.com/20060622/installing-and-uninstall-vista-beta-2-for-dual-boot-with-xp/ i found that website and i can do what it says under the uninstall part except that i can;t run xp to give it that command. Do i have to do this? Or can i just delete the files it says too.
If i need to give xp that command is there a way to manually edit the boot files from a linux live cd?
XP was the main partition
