Uninstall Vista Partition?!?!?!?!?!

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

URGENT – GRUB 1.5 will not boot Windows, just installed Ubuntu Linux 8.04. Help!?

I am completely new to anything that is Linux. I just installed Ubuntu Linux 8.04 from a Live CD to my computer a few minutes ago. Now, I wanted to boot back into Windows, and GRUB 1.5 will not let me. This is what happens: I restart my computer, I choose Windows XP Media Center after GRUB 1.5 lets me pick which OS to boot, and it says “Loading” and nothing ever happens after that. There is never even an error message that pops up. Only Ubuntu will load. How do I fix this problem? I installed Linux on the same drive where Windows was. Is it still there? You don’t know HOW much I would appreciate it if somebody could tell me an easy & understanable way how to fix this. I still have my HP Recovery discs, can I use those? Please PLEASE help. I’ll give more details if it is necessary…
Everything seems to work fine with GRUB 1.5, then I select Windows XP Media Center (which is the Windows OS I have), and *correction to what I wrote earlier, It says “Starting Up” but It never does. Should I just do an HP Recovery, please help I feel like I really screwed things up please be on the line.
