    I'm trying to remove GRUB and I've heard I should go into the Windows XP Recovery Console and use the Fixmbr command, but I'm scared it'll screw up my second partition with my backup data. Does Fixmbr mess with and destroy second partitions?

    If so, then is there another way? I gatta remove that blasted GRUB, because I deleted the Linux Partition and forgot to remove GRUB first. Now I can't boot windows xp!

    I used PartitionMagic to make the second partition.
